dc.titleHow retirement, health benefits and longevity affect household savings ?en
dc.typeDocument de travail / Working paper
dc.description.abstractenThis paper analyses the impact of welfare systems and longevity on savings. It develops a life-cycle model embodying social transfers (health care and pension expenditures) and changes in longevity to determine the level of household savings. We simulated an aggregate saving equation and derived a reduced-form model, together with other factors such as public deficits and the population structure. The model is estimated for a panel of 18 OECD countries. Our principal result is that both pension and health transfers may have a significant negative impact on the household saving. Therefore these interactions should be taken account when designing welfare reforms.en
