SAVING: The after-tax disposable income of the household sector that is not used for consumption expenditures. In general terms, saving is the use of income to purchase legal claims through financial markets rather than the direct purchase of physical goods and services. In the macroeconomic world modeled by the circular flow, saving is the diversion of household income away from consumption and into the financial markets. In this model, saving is a primary source of funds used for business investment expenditures for capital goods. Saving is also used to finance government expenditures.

LUXURY TAX: A tax on relatively expensive goods that are typically purchased primarily by the wealthy or affluent. A luxury tax is generally set up as an excise tax on the purchase price of a good over an specific amount. For example, a 10% tax on the purchase price of an automobile over $30,000 would be considered a luxury tax. Goods most likely subject to luxury taxies are (expensive) cars, jewelry, boats, planes, and furs. A luxury tax is, by design, a progressive tax that falls more heavily on those with more income. Like almost every tax, a luxury tax is controversial and debated, favored by those not paying and opposed by those paying.
