Abstract
The foundation of this study is a dynamic model, describing wealth effects on aggregate consumption in Sweden based on annual data 1980-2008. The dynamic model is conducted with reference to the life-cycle hypothesis, and results in a short-term as well as a long-term relationship between the examined variables. In general, its method is a conventional cointegration study, where the long term relationship is pictured with an error correction model. The error correction model includes variables for disposable income, net financial assets and net housing assets. In opposition to conventional cointegration studies, the general equation is estimated in one step (Banerjee et al), compared to Engle-Granger’s acknowledged two step method.
