Saving can be viewed as a leakage of funds out of the circular flow model. (Taxes are also a form of leakage, so are imports).

If the economy is looked upon as a circular flow of funds similar to an engine with the funds as fuel, a loss of funds to saving would slow down the economy just as a loss of fuel would slow down the engine.
