    Abstract

    Given the relatively low official saving rate, rapid rise in housing price and high ownership of property in Australia in last decade, the question naturally arises whether increases in house prices over the last decade ramped up property investment and hence crowded out traditional household saving. If yes, then the over-spending which traditional measures of savings suggest might be less of an issue since Australians might have saved in their property. In this paper, we attempt to answer these questions using HILDA panel data and aggregate macroeconomic data.
