The paper investigates the causal relationship between Bangladesh’s gross domestic savings (GDS) and gross domestic product (GDP). Using yearly time series data from 1980 to 2018, we employ two short-run and one long-run causality tests to identify the direction of causality between these two variables. We find unidirectional causality running from growth to savings in the short run. However, long-run causality is not found in any direction under any of the tests.
