  • Algan, Y.
  • Hairault, J.-O.


L'ambition de ce travail est d'evaluer quantitativement la capacite de l'epargne de precaution a s'assurer contre le risque de chomage dans le cadre d'une economie caracterisee par des risques idiosyncratiques se traduisa nt par une heterogeneite sur le marche du travail. Il apparaît que l'epargne de precaution permet de reduire considerablement le cout des fluctuations associees au risque de chomage. Elle offre ainsi un niveau d'assurance relativement comparable au systeme d'allocation-chomage existant.
