Working paper version December Quarterly Journal of Economics,1 Does this imply that targeting transfers to women promotes economic development?

Prof. Matthias Doepke, The Family in Macroeconomics

We account for this evidence with a quantitative model foepke household bargaining in which the distribution of the burden of child care between mothers and fathers is a key determinant of fertility.

Cultural transmission is Beckerian, i.

The same in French: If financial macroeconoomics are imperfect, this results in the stratification of society along occupational lines. Starting from a general mechanism with arbitrary communication, randomization, full history dependence, and without restrictions on preferences or technology, we show how the optimal contract can be efficiently implemented as a recursive direct mechanism.

Apart from influencing fertility, the policies also have large effects on the evolution of the income distribution in the course of development.

The paper partly supersedes an earlier paper entitled “Inflation as a Redistribution Shock: Poor madroeconomics decide to have many children and invest little in education. In particular, we demonstrate that such measures may have the unintended side effect of lowering domestic support for banning child labor within developing countries, and thus may contribute to the persistence of the child-labor problem.

In this paper, we investigate men’s incentives for sharing power with women. You’ll find more information here. We use a life cycle model with housing to compute the response of the U. Our model is consistent with the observations that the changing wage-hours correlation among men is driven by married men, and that there is little change in the wage-hours correlation among employed women and at the household level. Empirical evidence suggests, however, that many potential mothers and fathers disagree on whether to have children, on how many children to have, and on when to have them.

Institutions such as the family, the clan, the guild, and the market organize who learns from whom. Journal of Economic TheoryJanuary We provide empirical evidence supportive of our mechanism: We argue that superior institutions for the creation and dissemination of productive knowledge help explain the European advantage.

A Cure for Hyper-Parenting. Since the s, the United States has experienced a sharp rise in the college wage premium. We present a model of endogenous technical change where growth is driven by the innovative activity of entrepreneurs.

We develop a theory that integrates private education and fertility decisions with voting on public schooling expenditures. Gender Equality, Development, Marital Bargaining. In our model, women’s legal rights set the marital bargaining mcaroeconomics of husbands and wives. Book Love, Money, and Parenting: Northwestern University Department of Economics. We start by focusing on short and medium run fluctuations, and argue that changes in family structure in recent decades have important repercussions for the determination of aggregate labor supply and savings.


Why Johnny Can’t Work A static version of the model that illustrates the main ideas in a simplified framework useful for teaching purposes. A mean-preserving spread in the income distribution increases the fertility differential between the rich and the poor, which implies that more weight gets placed macroeconokics families who provide little education. The literature on the economic consequences of women’s rights documents that more rights for women lead to more spending on health and children, which should benefit development.

A non-technical summary in Czech: In the centuries leading up to the Industrial Revolution, Western Europe gradually pulled ahead of other world regions in terms of technological dooepke, population growth, and income per capita. In addition, public schooling leads to income convergence, while private schooling can result in ever increasing inequality.

As a result, younger women who turn adult in the s face increased labor-market competition, which impels them to exit the labor market and start having children earlier. In many developing countries, the institutional framework governing economic life has its roots in the colonial period, when the interests of European settlers clashed with those of the native population or imported slaves.
