Saving is what is left from income after consumption is taken out. Saving is primarily determined by the level of real income. The higher the income, the more individuals are willing and able to save.

Saving is what will permit consumption in the future. In today's society, a lot of saving is institutional. For instance, social security contributions and pension plan deductions are a form of saving.
