  • The State of the Nation's Savings
    • Savings policy in the United States is at a critical juncture. The U.S. personal saving rate has declined from 10.8 percent in 1984 to zero in 2005."
    • Assets are like ladders that can place low- and moderate-income (LMI) families in reach of opportunity. Also, increased saving benefits both households and the economy overall. If every household with less than the median net worth saved an additional $1,000, it would add $56 billion to the economy. This paper, published by Urban Institute, a nonpartisan economic and social policy organization, addresses barriers to saving among LMI households, such as asset tests in welfare and education policies.
