Population Aging and International Capital Flows

David Domeij () and Martin Flodén ()

Abstract: We use the neoclassical growth framework to model international capital flows in an economy with exogenous demographic change. We compare model implications and actual current account data and find that the model explains a small but significant fraction of capital flows between OECD countries, in particular after 1985.
