  Saving, by Laurence J. Kotlikoff: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics: Library of Economics and Liberty
Some of the factors that undoubtedly affect the amount people save are culture, differences in saving motives, economic growth, demographics, how many people in the economy are in the labor force, the insurability of risks, and economic policy.
Another issue related to motives and preferences for saving is the role of the rich in generating aggregate saving.
One possible explanation for the recent decline in saving is a reduction in saving for bequests, which may tie in with the decline in the birthrate.

  Saving (money) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Saving refers to an activity occurring over time, a flow variable, whereas savings refers to something that exists at any one time, a stock variable.
Saving can therefore be vital to increase the amount of fixed capital available, which contributes to economic growth.

Personal Saving is found by subtracting from DPI total Personal Outlays, 97% of which consists of Personal Consumption Expenditures (including consumer durables), with the remainder composed of Interest Paid by Persons (individuals, nonprofits, and trust funds) and Net Personal Transfer Payments to the Rest of the World.
One concern that has been expressed over a low personal saving rate is that it may cause national savings to be insufficient to support the level of investment necessary to sustain a high level of long-run economic growth without excessive dependence on foreign capital.
However, when savings by businesses and government are added to personal saving, this measure of aggregate gross saving as a percentage of GNP is estimated to have been 17.2% in 2001:Q3, which is likely to have been the nadir of the current recession.

 Daylight saving time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Daylight saving time (DST), also known as summer time, is a conventional local time adopted by many countries of the world on a seasonal basis.
Part of the reason that it is normally observed only in the early spring, summer, and early autumn instead of the winter months is that the amount of energy saved by experiencing sunset one hour later would be negated by the increased need for artificial morning lighting due to a later sunrise.
In the normative form of the name, "daylight saving" is a compound adjective that modifies "time." A common variant is daylight savings time, which is frequently heard in speech and appears in some dictionaries.
