On the Determinants of Domestic Saving in Ethiopia


The domestic saving rate in Ethiopia has been too low to sustain robust capital accumulation and economic growth in the country. The saving rate has also been declining over time with far reaching implications on the growth and poverty reduction prospects of the country. This paper examines the vertical and empirical issues and forces in the determination of domestic saving in the country. It argues that the fiscal and monetary policies, the investment regime, and external factors interact exerting their respective influence on the behavior of economic agents and the domestic saving performance of the country
