Abstract: Investment processes occurring in the economy are necessary to achieve economic growth. A relatively rapid and long-term economic growth and necessary structural changes in the economy are always connected with allocating considerable capital endowment in investment processes. Accumulation capability is determined by capital resource that may be used for development (investment) and depends mainly on the capability of economy to economise as high saving rate usually allows for high investment rate. Total accumulation of economy is determined not only by accumulation capability of domestic entities but also through inflow of capital from the outside, which supplements domestic sources of accumulation.

Keywords: investment; accumulation capability; financial results; Poland; emerging economies; economic growth; economic development; capital endowment.
