- Digitalization penetrates all aspects of economy and finance, changes the behavior of major economic agents. The primary research question is to determine whether digital technology is really a tool for increasing savings in the economy. The empirical study has included the construction of a logit model, in which the probability of short-term savings of an agent acts as a dependent variable. The results of the modelling show that saving behavior is sensitive to the introduction of digital technologies such as the Internet and the proliferation of mobile phones. Having an account at a financial institution also increases the likelihood of savings. However, when developing and implementing public policies, it is necessary to take into account the fact that digital technologies can stimulate the use of informal savings institutions. The findings of the study substantiate the need to build skills in the use of mobile and Internet technologies to increase the financial inclusion of all segments of the population and increase the level of savings.
