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.

MARGINAL PROPENSITY FOR GOVERNMENT PURCHASES: The proportion of each additional dollar of national income that is used for government purchases. Or alternatively, this is the change in government purchases due to a change in national income. Abbreviated MPG, the marginal propensity for government purchases is the slope of the government purchases line used in the analysis of Keynesian economics. As such, it also plays a role in the slope of the aggregate expenditure line and the multiplier effect.

EURODOLLARS

Deposits denominated in U.S. dollars in banks located outside of the United States or domestic branches of foreign banks. While such deposits originated with European banks, hence the "Euro" part of the name, they can be held by banks from any foreign country. Eurodollars are an attractive investment because they are NOT in U.S. banks and thus are NOT subject to U.S. banking regulations. Eurodollars, along with other institutional investment near monies, are added to M2 to derive M3.
