Saving and Investing

"Alternative Measures of Personal Saving
Excerpt: "The alternative measures of personal saving discussed in this article differ from the NIPA measure in the way that they measure consumption or disposable personal income. However, they are still calculated as the residual that remains after consumption and related outlays are subtracted from disposable personal income." ( U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis)
