Saving and the Real Interest Rate in Developing Countries

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany
Raising real interest rates has been cited as a way to increase private saving, and thus provide the resources for growth. But this may not be a viable approach in the poorest developing countries in which most people live at subsistence level. In these situations, consumption is not very responsive to fluctuations in real interest rates and financial liberalization my not be the catalyst to higher higher saving rates.
