Credit and British consumers: some micro evidence

Davies, J and Guglielmo Weber ()

Fiscal Studies, 1991, vol. 12, issue 2, 61-84

Abstract: In this paper we use micro-data as a basis for measuring liquidity constraints over the time period 1972-86. We then employ our results to (i) investigate the Life Cycle/Permanent Income Hypothesis and (ii) examine the theory that the consumer boom of the 1980s can be explained in terms of the financial liberalisation which took place at the start of the decade.
