Fertility, Human Capital and the Wealth of Families

Robert Tamura ()

Economic Theory, 1994, vol. 4, issue 4, 593-603

Abstract: An overlapping generations model with parental altruism is examined. The existence of the optimal value function in a model with an endogenous discount rate is proven. Two development regimes are produced: a high fertility, low income and no growth steady state, and a perpetual growth equilibrium with low fertility and rising income.
