Why Don't Americans Save? Savings Rate Declined Over Past Two Decades (PDF)
Center for Retirement Research at Boston CollegeLink to more items from this source
Nov. 18, 2004
34 pages. Excerpt: This paper provides an examination of the decline in the household saving rate over the past two decades from both the macroeconomic and microeconomic perspectives. Between 1980-84 and 2000-04 private saving fell more than 8 percentage points of U.S. GDP. At the aggregate level, about 40 percent of the fall in the household saving rate occurred within contractual retirement accounts, that is, within employer-sponsored and individual retirement plans.
