Overview

The impact of technological development on household savings is of central importance to development students and practitioners attempting to devise effective policy for economic growth in general and agricultural capital formation in particular. For the predominantly agricultural economy of Bangladesh, this is an important issue due to the very low rate of growth in the agriculture sector there during the last three decades. This study investigates the relationship between investment opportunities and saving from a theoretical perspective, measures the impact of High Yielding Variety technology on saving in the case of Bangladesh, and compares the rate of return from some common types of investments of rural households in Bangladesh.
