An Econometric Investigation into the Macroeconomic Relationship between Investment and Saving: Evidence from the EU Region
Within the EU region, the emerging policy orientation of pursuing balanced or in-surplus budgets as a means of revitalising investment has dominated economic policy. Nonetheless, the notion that saving must be boosted in order to expand investment, is a contention that has to be taken with a 'pinch of salt'. This study, by elaborating on the causal dimension between investment and saving, provides econometric evidence on the basis of which investment is a variable of the utmost importance.
