The economic unit model on that picture. Is that a house, our economy or any goods in general? How does the economist come into the picture with this.

The ECONOMIC UNIT is just an abstract representation for many possible economic entities that all have certain things in common. It could be a single person living alone. It could be a family of 4. It could be a hippy commune. It could be a multi-billion dollar corporation. In some ways you could compare it to a water tank. Water flowing in is income. Water flowing out is expenses. But the tank is not prefect, there is leakage from the bottom which is depreciation. A single man living alone...

Does the term and title 'net worth' only applies to the owner? It cannot seem to say the net worth of my car since its had depreciation associated with it. Or a house. Or a job. The person and or person that own can claim 'net worth' it seems? That's is very trick term 'net worth'.

Anytime there is a competition there is winners and losers. Capitalism is all about competition and thus produces winners and losers. The only way you cannot have winners and losers in competition is to have a DRAW or TIE. Thus, if entities are competing for capital investment an entity winning those investments means another entity losing those investments. Now, I am about to go over your head in that economics are bound by the physical laws of nature of this closed system we inhabit.
