In an open economy, this need not be thecase. Thus, if we observe low saving-investment correlations acrosscountries, then we can conclude that countries are not closed, thatis. that there is international capital market integration.But suppose we find a near perfect correlation between  S   and  I  .Does this necessarily mean that there is no capital mobility? 2  International Macroeconomics, Chapter 8   Schmitt-Groh´e, Uribe, Woodford Observed Savings-Investment Correlations 1.
