1. Hishongwa, Elise Ndapewoshali. The relationship between saving mobilisation, investment and economic growth in Namibia.

Degree: 2015, Stellenbosch University

Thesis (MDF (Development Finance)) – Stellenbosch University, 2015.

ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The study sought to analyse the dynamic relationship between domestic savings, investment and economic growth in Namibia, and ascertain the direction of causality between domestic savings, investment and economic growth, using the vector auto-regression methodology. This method relies on the use of impulse response functions and forecast error variance decompositions. The major findings of the study are outlined below. First, the study shows that shocks to savings affect savings, investment and economic growth positively and significantly. In addition, shocks to investment significantly affect investment and savings in the short run, but they are insignificant in explaining economic growth. Further, shocks to economic growth significantly influence savings, investment and economic growth. Second, the variance decomposition results show that the variation in savings is largely explained by shocks to savings, investment and economic growth, in that respective order of size. Furthermore, the variation in investment is explained significantly by shocks to all three the variables although it can be noted that savings and economic growth are more important in explaining investment in the long run than investment. The study also established that variations in economic growth are not explained by investment shocks in both the short and long runs. In brief, savings shocks are more important in explaining variations in economic growth than economic growth in the long run.

2. Mzobe, Nomfundo. The role of education and financial inclusion in Africa : the case of selected African countries.

Degree: M.Phil, Economics, 2015, Stellenbosch University

ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The importance of financial inclusion to a country in promoting inclusive growth cannot be over emphasised, but the role of education in fostering financial inclusion has not been well established in empirical literature. This is particular severe in Africa where only 34 per cent of the adult population have access to a bank account and about 14.8 per cent of the population aged 15 and above have no schooling. Therefore, the major objective of this study was to examine the relationship between financial inclusion and education levels in Africa. Financial inclusion indicators captured in the study are account ownership, savings and health insurance. Educational attainment was disaggregated into ‘primary or less’ and ‘secondary or more’ years of schooling, while financial inclusion data was sourced from the World Bank Global Financial Index. The empirical results pointed out that both measures of education, primary as well as secondary, have a significant influence on financial inclusion. After controlling for other factors that equally influence financial inclusion, education has a positive and statistically significant effect on financial inclusion in all the models estimated. The effect of education on account ownership, savings and health insurance is statistically significant at one per cent level. GDP per capita has a statistically positive effect on financial inclusion, and inflation, weak law, age dependency and overhead costs have a negative and statistically significant effect on financial inclusion in all models estimated. The results emphasised the importance of macroeconomic stability and having a good institutional framework in achieving financial inclusion in Africa. This, therefore, suggested that one reason why African countries have experienced less financial inclusion was poor institutional frameworks as well as macroeconomic instability.
