The Impact of the Demographic Transition on Capital Formation
The population of the United States is aging. The authors review a variety of the implications this has for U.S. national saving rates and discuss the policy issues that they raise. After reviewing what different models would predict for household saving over the next several decades, they consider how the demographic transition may also affect national saving through changes in government behavior. Ways in which the composition of household saving might change as individuals age are also analyzed along with the implications of changes in government fiscal policy for asset composition.
