Some studies use reduced forms to project households’ lifetime asset- and income paths, and derive from them implications for savings adequacy. Results are varied: Kotlikoff et al. (1982), Love et al. (2008) and Hurd and Rohwedder (2008) all find there is no generalized under-saving. On the contrary, according to Haveman et al. (2006), about half of retirees will not have enough resources in retirement to meet their pre-retirement consumption level. Moore and Mitchell (1997) also find that the median household needs to increase its saving rate substantially until the age of retirement in order to obtain an ‘adequate’ level of wealth for retirement (an additional 16% saving rate to retire at age 62, or 7% to retire at age 65).
