抜粋

This article develops a method for testing the risk-sharing hypothesis (RSH) against various versions of the permanent income hypothesis (PIH) while allowing for heterogeneity in risk preferences across households. Using 1-year and longer differences in household total nondurable consumption data from Indian villages, we find evidence that favors the RSH over the PIH at the village level.
