SAVING LINE: A graphical depiction of the relation between household saving and household disposable income. The slope of this line is positive, greater than zero, less than one, and goes by the name marginal propensity to save. The vertical intercept of the saving line is autonomous saving. The saving and investment, or leakage and injection, analysis used in Keynesian economics begins with the saving line. Because consumption is the difference between disposable income and saving, the consumption line is a complementary relation to the saving line.

MARGINAL PROPENSITY TO SAVE

The proportion of each additional dollar of household income that is used for saving. The marginal propensity to save (abbreviated MPS) is another term for the slope of the saving line and is calculated as the change in saving divided by the change in income. The MPS plays a central role in Keynesian economics. It quantifies the saving-income relation, which is the flip side of the consumption-income relation, and thus it reflects the fundamental psychological law. It is also a critical to the multiplier process. A related saving measure is the average propensity to save.

The 1909 Lincoln penny was the first U.S. coin with the likeness of a U.S. President.
"Everyone's got it in him, if he'll only make up his mind and stick at it. None of us is born with a stop-valve on his powers or with a set limit to his capacities. There's no limit possible to the expansion of each one of us."

-- Charles M. Schwab
