    The Timing of Intergenerational Transfers, Tax Policy, and Aggregate Savings David Altig, Steve J. Davis. NBER Working Paper No. Issued in June NBER Program(s):Public Economics We analyze the interest rate and savings effects of fiscal policy in an overlapping generations framework that accommodates two observations: (1) The interest rate on consumption loans exceeds the rate of Cited by: A model of intergenerational transfers of an individual who is “born” (or put differently, becomes a decision maker in this model) at time t, Yt, consists of his own endowment, wt, and non-negative transfers from his parents, Bt−e that the interest rate, r, is constant over.

    Borrowing constraints pin down the optimal timing of altruistic intergenerational transfers and thereby alter the implications of intergenerational altruism for fiscal policy. Regardless of whether parent-to-child altruistic transfer motives operate, borrowing constraints imply effects of social security programs that deviate greatly from the effects in Ricardian and traditional life-cycle Cited by: 3. In addition to showing how constraints to intergenerational transfers are essential in under- standing the relationship between fertility and income, our paper contributes to the literature on fertility choice by providing conditions under which this relationship is negative in models of dynas-Author: Juan Carlos Cordoba, Marla Ripoll.

    Together, annual inheritances and inter vivos transfers averaged about $ billion ( dollars) per year in the period to , which amounts to around 3 percent of total household sector Disposable Personal Income (DPI). Thus, intergenerational transfers are roughly the same magnitude of total personal saving as measured in the National Income and Product Accounts (NIPA).   In the past three decades the Chinese housing market has been profoundly transformed as China emerged as a world “market” economy. Now, a growing middle class is pursuing the Chinese Dream—a car, an apartment and a family. While there is substantial research on the Chinese economy and studies of housing in individual cities, we know less about the behavior of the youngest cohorts Cited by: 2.

We examine the effects of intergenerational transfers on saving behavior by analyzing transfers targeted to first-time home purchases. Transfer recipients have a shorter time to save for a down payment of 9–20%.

For each dollar of transfer received, total savings falls by 29–40 cents and the down payment rises by 61–71 by: This information is used to estimate the impact of inter vivos transfers on the saving period required to purchase a house and on the value of the house purchased when households have limited access to mortgage markets.

It is found that transfers shorten the saving time by about two years and allow households to purchase considerably larger homes.

We examine the effects of intergenerational transfers on saving behavior by analyzing transfers targeted to first-time home purchases. Transfer recipients have a shorter time to save for a down payment of %. For each dollar of transfer received, total savings falls by cents and the down payment rises by cents.

Private Transfers, Borrowing Constraints Keywords: intergenerational transfers, homeownership, borrowing constraints for real estate are widespread and if they affect the timing of home. The study of transfer behavior in the housing market is advantageous for a number of reasons: the down payment requirement associated with home purchase can be thought of as an important, well-defined borrowing constraint that most U.S.

This information is used to estimate the share of intergenerational transfers in total welath and to relate this share to households' characteristics.

The analysis identifies a positive relationship between the receipt of intergenerational transfers and the hazard or conditional transition into home ownership tenure for the first time. In particular, for the sample of individuals the hazard or probability of transition into first home ownership is effectively doubled in the period in which a Cited by: 6.

Small family businesses differ from non-family businesses in that their functioning is not independent of the life cycle of the owner-operator, and in that other family considerations sometimes lead to sub-optimal managerial decisions from the point of view of the business. This is why a smooth intergenerational succession is essential to the profitability of the business, and to the welfare Cited by: Parental marital dissolution and the intergenerational transmission of homeownership Christa Hubers, Caroline Dewilde and Paul M.

Hence transfer taxation systems usually include a tax on gifts as well.2 Taxes on estates are a form of a tax on wealth and, although it is rare, some countries (e.g.,Cited by: For example, intergenerational transfers may influence both the quantity and timing of home ownership along with related behaviours such as savings.
