Two of the variables are stock variables: K and M. Prices can't be characterized as a stock or flow variable. P, W, R, r and E apply at a given point in time whereas p, pe, pw and pE apply over a period of time. p, pw and pE are changes in P, W and E during previous time period while pe is the expected change in P during next time period. All the other variables are flow variables measured in some unit per unit of time (for instance, L is the number of hours worked per year or per any other unit of time).
