Details This paper investigates the household saving and wealth holding<br />behavior in Japan, especially after the burst of the bubble economy<br />in the 1990s. While the saving behavior we found in our previous<br />study (Takayama and Kitamura (1994)) remains in general, the<br />cohort analysis sheds new light on the saving behavior in Japan.<br />With a careful construction of the cohort data, life-cycle (age)<br />effect, time series effect, and cohort effect can be distinguished<br />clearly. It provides valuable information to policy makers.
