Abstract

Using data from China's Urban Household Survey and exploiting China's mandatory retirement policy, we use the regression discontinuity approach to estimate the impact of retirement on household non-durable expenditures. Retirement reduces total non-durable expenditures by about 21 percent. Among the categories of non-durable expenditures, retirement reduces the work-related expenditures and the expenditures on food consumed at home but does not has a significant effect on expenditures on entertainment. After excluding work-related expenditures, expenditures on food consumed at home and expenditures on entertainment, retirement does not have a significant effect on the remained non-durable expenditures. The findings suggest that retirement consumption puzzle might not a puzzle if an extended life-cycle model with home production is considered.
