WHO WEARS THE PANTS IN THE FAMILY: POWER DISTRIBUTION IN FAMILY CONSUMPTION

No 21739, 2000 Annual meeting, July 30-August 2, Tampa, FL from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: This paper combines the Becker family production model with a cooperative bargaining model to analyze power distribution within the family. Family consumption decisions are often made by one person, but for several people, suggesting traditional decision theory is inadequate. Using data gathered in Israel, we show the significance of family relationships in purchasing behavior.
