Recently, progresses have been made in understanding and in testing precautionary saving behaviour. This paper surveys the factors determining precautionary saving, the impact of government policies on this type of saving, and the numerical importance as well as the empirical relevance of this behaviour. Récemment, des progrès marquants ont été réalisés pour comprendre et vérifier le comportement d’épargne de précaution. Cet article passe en revue les déterminants de l’épargne de précaution, l’effet des politiques gouvernementales sur ce type d’épargne, l’importance quantitative de ce comportement ainsi que les tests empiriques.
