Determinants of saving in Poland: Are they different than in other OECD countries?

Aleksandra Kolasa and Barbara Liberda ()

No 2014-13, Working Papers from Faculty of Economic Sciences, University of Warsaw

Abstract: This paper studies the drivers of total private and household savings in Poland and compares them to those in developed countries. To this end, the two types of saving regressions are estimated: one based on an annual panel of OECD countries and the other using Polish quarterly time series. Compared to an “average” OECD country, the Polish private and household saving rates are more affected by the process of financial deepening. Moreover, they are also more sensitive to changes in government and corporate savings.
