Abstract: This special issue of Research in Economics is devoted to a further step in this direction. It presents a first stock taking of the International Savings Comparison Project – a project performed under the auspices of a European Union sponsored network of researchers. The main focus of this project is the interaction of household saving with public policy, notably the generosity and design of public pension systems. It is very much in the tradition of Feldstein's (1974) seminal study, but we transpose the inference from time series data to a set of international panel data.
