A reply to Michl
In his 'Comments', Tom Michl defends the proposal for a fully funded pension scheme based on a saving-led 'classical growth model' against my Keynesian contention that a higher saving supply would be deflationary in both the short run and the long run. Michl adds a further argument that an increase in the saving rate associated with a lower interest rate may speed up the accumulation process. I remark that the thesis that a lower interest rate has a positive influence on investment is empirically and theoretically controversial, while the idea that an increase in investment requires a larger saving supply is open to further Keynesian objections.
