EVALUATION OF THE DYNAMIC EFFECTS OF IOLE CASH HOLDING IN A DEVELOPING ECONOMY
With the multifarious (many / various ) increase in the economic system money become the most acceptable means of transaction and payment of debt. The proportion of money which is not used in normal recurring transaction or is held in excess of the normal need is called “idle cash” The excess of the normal need is called “Idle cash” The continuos with drawl of money from the circular flow of income between the household individual s, firms and industries becenies so alarming and devastating; it deprive the users the great opportunity of making any meaningful and judicious use of idle cash.
In the area of research methodology primary and secondary source of data collecting will be adopted. The primary data source includes oral interview administration on questionnaire observation and literature review. While the secondary sources of data collection to be adopted are the use of text books, financial standards etc.
There are some constraint towards this project which I include money –which is inadequate time to combine my lectures, personal chores and project research work, protocols to be observed will surely delay this project. Inadequate libraries and materials to lay hands on.
The researcher therefore wish to embark on this work to remedy some of these problems and their effects on the economy. The project work intend to highlight the pros and cons of the negative use of idle cash , constant flow of money in circulation , light interest rate and poor cross Domestic product (GDP) the research work will not only be in document for the accounts department
