ABSTRACT. The paper concerns motives and attitudes of young Georgians towards saving. The goal of this work is to point out differences between those who save and those who do not save money in the context of these motives and atti- tudes. Additionally, the relationship between saving and demographical factors, along with life satisfaction, was stud- ied. It was noted that Georgians’ views on saving money of- ten originate from culture and differ from what is observed in Western Europe. The results that are described come from the primary research conducted in Georgia in 2014.
