Dependency Ratio, Foreign Capital Inflows and the Rate of Savings in Pakistan
Domestic resource mobilization is one of the key determinants of sustained economic growth.

Dependency ratio and foreign capital inflows exert a depressing effect on savings while income and real interest rate have a positive effect. Realistic interest rate policies in the context of liberalized financial markets are required to mobilize greater savings.
