Aggregate Saving Behavior In Africa: The objective of this paper is to review the theoretical and empirical literature on and to examine the available evidence in order to draw lessons that are particularly relevant for African economies in general Ethiopia in particular.
It attempts to document the main theoretical linkages of saving to major macro-economic aggregates and the factors that determine saving at the micro-economic or household level, examine the existing empirical evidence, present a new estimated result conducted in the context of this study.
The literature as well as the empirical finding in this study shows that saving is positively related to income level or growth, rate of investment, and short-run changes in terms of trade.
On the other hand, more it is negatively related to macroeconomic instability, foreign aid, and age-dependency ratio. To be or not to be: The potential is examined using the Trade Complementarity Index and the heda frontier gravity The potential is examined using the Trade Complementarity Index and the stochastic frontier gravity model of trade.
Apart from reforming trade policies, removing other behind-the-border socio-political-institutional constraints and improving trade facilitation would contribute to realization of this potential. However, the realization of this potential gedz entail locking African countries in primary commodity sectors and hence deindustrialization. We also found that the indirect impacts of this demand surge are more significant.
This calls for strategic policy engagement with China, India and alrmayehu emerging economies such as Brazil with the aim of balancing between the temporary resource windfall gain and the future industrialization and development of the continent.

Institutions to ensure this, including geva commercial banks and trading houses, will need to be created.
