Who is Eager to Save for Retirement – The Cross-Country Evidence,” by Anna Kaliciak, Radoslaw Kurach and Walid Merouani (LWS Working Paper No. 23, December 2016, .pdf format, 58p.).

Abstract:

In this study we challenge the problem of inadequate voluntary pension saving looking for its behavioural determinants. By exploring the Luxembourg Wealth Study dataset for four countries (Greece, Italy, United Kingdom and United States) we argue that financial risk aversion and intertemporal choices significantly affect the individuals? propensity to save for retirement. Moreover, we verify the links between these two behavioural factors and sociodemographic characteristics of the investigated societies which should have practical implications for regulatory framework.
