Community economic literacy and the 'leaky bucket'
This guide demonstrates the use of the 'leaky bucket' economic analysis tool. The tool enables people to identify and quantify the main flows of money coming into and leaving their community. This process can reveal economic opportunities to improve household and community economic well-being. It is often used in ABCD (asset-based community development) activities.
