Abstract: borrowing constraints and risk-averse households. In this estimation, we account for measurement error in both consumption and income and we use an auxiliary model---which forms the bridge between the data and the consumption-savings model---that provides a sharp distinction between the RIP and HIP models. Finally, we conduct formal statistical tests to assess the extent to which the RIP and HIP models find support in the data.
