A first look at the 'Cash for Clunkers' program
This paper estimates the short run effect of the Car Allowance Rebate System (or “Cash for Clunkers” on light vehicle sales within the United States. Using a reduced form demand model of automobiles, We find that the program led to increased sales in July and August, 2009 of between 450,000 and 710,000 vehicles. Further, We find that the pre-announcement of the program did not reduce sales in June 2009. Further, We can reject a ‘Cash for Clunkers' associated decline in automobile sales in the months immediately following the termination of the program.
