Michael J. Hamburger

This paper investigates the household demand for four financial assets: marketable bonds, time and savings deposits at commercial banks, life insurance reserves, and savings accounts at other financial institutions--credit unions, savings and loan associations, and mutual savings banks.

The explanatory variables used in the study are: income, wealth, and the yields on various assets included in household portfolios.
