Abstract

From a panel data study in OECD countries we try to determine the medium-term factors explaining the evolution of households saving. This approach enables to take into account the impact of medium-term factors, such as public saving or demography, that are difficult to identify in a time-series approach. It also enables to test heterogeneity between countries and to draw a comparison between them. This study proves in particular the impact of Ricardian equivalence and of demography on the evolution of households saving during the past ten years.
