The Family in Flux: Household Decision-Making in Latin America

Orazio P. Attanasio, Miguel Székely, Jere Behrman and Suzanne Duryea

No 328 in IDB Publications (Books) from Inter-American Development Bank

Abstract: This book breaks away from the exclusively macroeconomic focus of development studies to bring the spotlight to the place where decisions are made: households. Complementing this microeconomic view with an aggregate approach, this volume uncovers clues to declining fertility, skyrocketing female labor force participation and many other phenomena that are changing the face of economic activity in Latin America. Insights gleaned from the five in-depth case studies and the policy implication chapters should prove invaluable to scholars, development practitioners and policy-makers alike.
