Abstract

A tanulmány a fogyasztói magatartás elméletének legújabb vonulatát, az úgynevezett óvatossági megtakarítás modelljét alkalmazza ahhoz, hogy következtetéseket vonjon le az egyes országok eladósodási politikájára vonatkozóan. A hagyományos modellek determinisztikus jövedelemvárakozások mellett elemezték a fogyasztók döntéseit. Ilyen feltevések mellett nem magyarázható meg kielégítően, hogy miért nem ,,bátrabbak" a gyorsan növekvő országok a külső hitelek felvételében. Ha figyelembe vesszük a jövedelem sztochasztikusságát, és feltesszük, hogy a fogyasztó fél a szélsőséges ingadozásoktól, akkor ,,tartalékol'" a bizonytalan jövőre, vagyis óvatosabb lesz, nem vesz fel annyi hitelt. Túl nagy többletet sem fog felhalmozni, mert a fogyasztó előnyben részesíti a jelenbeli fogyasztást a jövőbelivel szemben. Így kialakul egy optimális pénzügyi pozíció (kinnlevőség vagy adósság), amelyben egyensúlyban van a türelmetlenség (és/vagy gyors növekedés) követelte eladósodási indíték és az óvatosságból származó többletfelhalmozási motívum. Az egyensúly feltételeit és tulajdonságait fogalmazza meg a tanulmány modell segítségével. A tanulmány kiegészíti Darvas-Simon [1999] számításait, amennyiben elméleti megalapozását adja a számításokból adódó következtetéseknek.
