dc.description.abstractPrivate savings mirror consumption behavior. In Europe, the dynamic of consumption is verylow, and at the same time, savings are increasing. Is this a result of macroeconomic policy?A GMM estimator is used to analyze the determinants of private saving in the EU?s 15member states. Our main findings are that savings rates inherit a certain degree ofpersistence and that income growth causes an increase in saving. While monetary policy istotally insignificant, fiscal policy has a major impact on private savings. The long-run effectsof public deficits are greater than the effects of rising income.en_US
