Summary
Cultural factors have a profound influence on economic behavior. Two countries with varying political and legal traditions, religious institutions and historical legacy produce contrasting attitudes concerning income maintenance. Conservative, orthodox and group-oriented Canadians posted a higher savings rate and total spending on life insurance than their liberal, sectarian and individualistic American counterparts.
