Abstract

I investigate whether the determinants of Private Savings changed for G7 countries during the Great Recession. I do this by controlling for many of the key determinants of private savings from previous literature and then adding control variables for each country and adding a post-recession variable (2009-2015). In my third and final regression, after controlling for both countries and country multiplied by time, I found evidence that the private savings rates dropped after the Great Recession.
