Fund flowed from the households sector to the Federal Government and business sectors. The financial sector re/arms, including the interest rates deregulation, resulted in domestic savings exceeding capital formation, and contributed to the expansion in money supply. Lending activity of the banking system showed a fluctuating cycle, but with the business sector receiving the major ~hare, and on its heels, the financial institution and the government sectors.
