Term induced saving Definition: Household saving that depends on income or production (especially disposable, national income, or gross national product). An increase in household disposable income triggers an increase in induced saving. Induced saving is graphically depicted as the slope of the saving or propensity-to-save line, and is measured by the marginal propensity to save. The induced relation between income and saving, as well as induced expenditures, form the foundation of the multiplier effect triggered by changes in autonomous expenditures.
