Optimal Saving, Interest Rates, and Endogenous Growth

Abstract [en]

The main point of this paper is that the apparent failure of economists thus far to establish a positive empirical link between interest rates and saving does not, by itself, discredit the hypothesis of a direct structural relationship between the two, ceteris paribus, because this structural relationship may be shifting about in response to changes in exogenous variables such as tastes and technology in a way that is consistent with any type of reduced-form correlation between interest rates and saving in the data. This point is demonstrated within a simple model of optimal saving, interest rates, and economic growth. The different implications of endogenous versus exogenous growth are explored in this context.
