Why Don't More Households File for Bankruptcy?
Although U.S. bankruptcy ling rates are at an all-time high, I argue in this paper that many more households would benet nancially from ling for bankruptcy than actually le. While the current bankruptcy ling rate is slightly above one percent of households each year, I calculate that at least 15% of households would benet nancially from ling and the actual gure could be several times higher if households tend to behave strategically in planning for bankruptcy.
