Description:Interaction within the Family: Collective Approach and Bargaining Models
Location:Turin, Italy
Subject:Intra-family aspects are often neglected in the economic literature, although several studies have shown that intra-household distributional effects should not be ignored when evaluating the welfare effects of social and family policies. However some obstacles remain in the theoretical implementation, and in the empirical application, of models allowing for multi-decision centers within the family. The purpose of the workshop is to bringing together some of the top experts and younger researchers in order to present and discuss the latest theoretical work related to the collective model, cooperative models and non-cooperative models of the household decision process as well as the relative empirical studies. The contributions, theoretical or applied, will concern the following topics: fertility decisions consumption choices intertemporal choices marriage market distributional effects of tax-benefit policies equivalence scales and welfare measurement at the individual level household's labor supply and domestic production [gem_ den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
