In her talk, Professor Brown will firstly analyse the relationship between savings and expectations at the individual level. Specifically, she will explore the relationship between saving on a regular monthly basis and expectations as measured by subjective job insecurity and being pessimistic about future finances. She will also focus on the influence of the prevailing macroeconomic environment. She exploits UK panel data covering 1996 to 2014 drawn from the British Household Panel Survey and Understanding Society
