Abstract

The relationship between mandatory pension saving and private saving is a hotly debated issue. In Malaysia, the mandatory pension saving refers to the Employees Provident Fund. This dissertation investigates empirically the relationship between saving through Employees Provident Fund and private saving in Malaysia using the data over the period 1970-2005. A multiple regression model was used and appropriate econometric methods are used in this dissertation to determine the relationship. The main purpose of this dissertation is to determine how far saving through Employees Provident Fund will have affect on the private saving in Malaysia. The final empirical results of the analysis finds a significant negative effect of saving through Employees Provident Fund on private saving, which mean saving through Employees Provident Fund fully offset private saving in the context of Malaysia. The dissertation then suggested that a further studies should be conduct to find if there exits a non-linear relationship between the mandatory pension saving and private saving in Malaysia.
