Abstract

This study examines the impact of domestic saving on Algeria's economic growth in the short and long run, using the auto regressive distributed lag model (ARDL) for the period 1980-2018. The results indicate the significant short and long run effects of saving on economic growth in Algeria's case, where saving levels are highly and very positive with the level of economic growth. In this context, the study recommends measures to mobilize domestic saving; considering them as the right way to finance capital accumulation, to develop the national economy, and to push it for appropriate and acceptable growth rates.
