In reply to comment: Capitalism (see in situ)

That's false.

A saved dollar increase FUTURE consumption twice:
1) the dollar will be spent later anyway
2) the invested dollar increases the trajectory of the productivity increase curve represented as return on investment, which is later also spent (or reinvested).

The assertion that "capitalism is based on consumption" is a pure-Keynsian/Marxist assertion.
