hoarding

the nonproductive retention of resources, products or money. Rather than release particular workers when demand for its products falls, a firm may retain them so as to be in a position to expand production again quickly when demand picks up. Hoarding of money may be practised by people who are reluctant to use the banking system, etc. as a repository for their savings.

hoarding

the nonproductive retention of MONEY or PRODUCTS. A certain amount of money is held in currency form to finance day-to-day transactions but this is turned-over on a regular basis.

Hoarding often occurs in less developed countries where people are unfamiliar with, or suspicious about, using the banking system as a savings repository.
