Abstract

This paper investigates the nature of the causal relationship between domestic saving and foreign investment in Australia using the Granger no-causality test procedure developed by Toda and Yamamoto (1995). The findings in the paper suggest that foreign investment has Granger-caused domestic saving in Australia but that no causality was found from saving to foreign investment. Therefore, the results reported in the paper reject the arguments by FitzGerald (1993) and support, indirectly, the Pitchford (1990) hypothesis in relation to the foreign debt debate in Australia and are consistent with the results of Layton and Makin (1993).
