About The Book

The economic development depends upon a multiplicity of factors. Amongst these varied factors, the rate of capital formation is one of the most important determinants of the rate of growth of an economy. It is one of the key inputs of development.

The economic development of a country depends Inter alia, on its financial structure. In the long-run, the larger the proportion of the financial assets to real assets, the greater is the scope for economic growth. Investment is a precondition of economic growth. To sustain growth, continued investment in the growth process is necessary. Since finance is an important input in the growth process, it plays a crucial role in the economy. A more efficient composition of real wealth is obtained by the promotion of financial assets which provide incentives to savers to hold a larger part of their wealth in the financial form. An increasing rate of savings correlates with the increase in the proportion of savings held in the form of financial assets − relative to tangible assets.
