ABSTRACT
This study is aimed at finding out the determinants of savings in a deregulated economy.  The Nigerian experience (1980-2010).  The following hypothesis was formulated to guide the study. Ho: Interest rate has no significant impact on national savings in deregulated economy of Nigeria. Ho: inflation rate has no significant impact on national savings in deregulated economy of Nigeria. Ho: Exchange rate has no significant impact on national savings in deregulated economy of Nigeria. The methodology adopted was the simple linear regression using the ordinary least square (OLS) technique. The analysis yielded some interesting findings that national saving which normally leads to investment are being determined by many factors such as interest rate, inflation rate, Exchange rate and many other variables not mentioned in this work. Though, some of these variables have negative relationship with national savings, they in one way or the other affect savings in a deregulated economy of Nigeria.  Based on the findings some recommendations were made which include the following: That effort should be geared by government towards encouraging savings which normally increase investment. Having been from the study that inflation rate has a negative relationship with national savings, government and her policy makers should always try to keep inflation rate as low as possible.  Interest rate should always be monitored so as to make sure that prospective savers are not discouraged from savings. Exchange rate as one of the independent variables and determinant of savings should always be monitored using appropriate monetary policy variable. Finally, further studies should be encouraged to find other economic variables not mentioned in this study that affect savings as well as investment in Nigeria.
