    In the s almost all capital flows to developing countries were from official sources, in the form of foreign aid from developed countries or of resources investment the multilateral institutions, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. In order to conceal both approaches, the authors provide the following recommendations: Scale economies, technical innovations and more professionalism can reduce interest rates. Out of the In general, various demographic characteristics exert some amount of influence on the savings and investment behaviour of rural households in varied ways.

Family size and knowledge in saving and investment by household heads had no significant relationship with savings and investment of the rural households in the Ho Municipality. Two approaches arise from this debate: - to develop an interest rate policy based on institutional sustainability; or — a political interest rate should be fixed. This debate in many ways reflects the controversy of rural finance: how to be sustainable and reaching the poor at the same time.

    The model is able to represent both these cases quite adequately. The level of saving in the economy depends on a number of factors incomplete list : A higher real interest rate investment give a greater return on saving as banks offer more favourable rates. The links between poverty, economic growth, and income distribution have been studied quite extensively in recent literature on economic development. Development in a broader perspective Modern economic development started in Great Britainwhich in the s accounted for a little over 1 percent of the total world population at that time. In a Monetarist sense, savings is the total rate at which units of account exceed expenditures, and are accumulated as unit of account e.

Modern science and technology can make immense contributions to agriculture, as illustrated by the Green Revolution created by the introduction of improved seeds and fertilizers in some Asian and Latin-American countries.
