Production, Market Production and the Gender Wage Gap: Incentives and Expectations

Stefania Albanesi () and Claudia Olivetti ()

Review of Economic Dynamics, 2009, vol. 12, issue 1, 80-107

Abstract: We study the joint determination of gender differences in labor earnings and time devoted to home production in an economy where informational frictions give rise to incentive problems in the labor market. Our model generates novel predictions on the relation between earnings, home hours and the incidence of performance pay, which we confront with the data. The empirical evidence broadly supports our hypothesis. (Copyright: Elsevier)
