Abstract

The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) recently released new research relating to the efficacy of policies aimed at increasing household saving rates. The authors, Thomas F. Crossley, Carl Emmerson and Andrew Leicester, find that there are significant gaps in the evidence base, and more research is needed to isolate the causal effects of different approaches.
