Savings Rates

Been meaning to post this one for a while.




Although as (Jensen I think it was) suggested it would be interesting to see what this would be like when 401k/IRA contributions are considered savings.

Tiny, tiny charts. How can I turn these into classroom charts without work if you make them so small..

he makes them small to conserve bandwidth. But given that it's google's bandwidth, I'm not sure I appreciate his cost-cutting concerns...

You should be able to find those charts on the Economist's website. If you don't have a subscription, try to get your school to pay for one. They offer an online subscription at a reduced rate, or you can get a combined print/online subscription.

Yes, that was me. Ceteris Paribus, I would expect "savings rates" to be lower in those countries with well-developed equity markets, as equity investments are not counted as "savings"

Hi Ed,

It's actually where I upload the charts from dictates the size of the charts. I reposted them so they should come in bigger now.
