Sources of private savings in Bangladesh

  1. Private income: The Bangladeshi people save their segment of income after consumption. The person who has a higher income saves more and who have lower income saves less. When they save on banks or other financial institutions, those savings become an investment. Banks lend them to entrepreneurs.
  2. Credit creation by the bank: People deposit money to banks and banks multiple those money by loans to entrepreneurs. Banks reinvest their profits and it helps the businessman to collect capital from the bank. In this way businessman can boost their profits and business. Many employees get a job on those business farms and they save a portion of their income.
  3. Investment in share market: People buy a share of the company from the share market because it is their easy investment. To buy lots of shares they save lots of money. So, the share market is a source of private savings.
  4. Sales of different saving certificates: The government collects money from general people by selling saving certificates or treasury bills.
  5. Undistributed dividend: Corporate farms don’t share all of their profits to their shareholders. They reinvest some of their profits. So, it is also a source of saving which goes to investment.

  3. Lack of security: Like other developing countries, the law and order of this country are not good enough. People fear losing all of their savings.
  4. Social and religious culture: Social and religious culture is not suitable to form capitals. Being uneducated, they believe in superstition and bigotry. So, they feel disinterested in savings.

  6. Increase fixed deposits: About 30 % of savings come from fixed deposits. there are not enough financial institutions to collect those deposits. The government should take proper steps on this.

    This winter has been hard on even the unfettered optomistics. You have been through a tremendous amount in the last 3 years taking care of everyone else. Now it is time to take care of Tatum. I happen to think you deserve that. A vacay is the right idea, but also try to do at least one indulgent thing for yourself every day, even if it is small. Remember, even if you are on lockdown, your friends and a relaxing glass of wine are only a skype away! Charleen Adrian Baecher
