ARE HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTION DECISIONS COOPERATIVE? EVIDENCE ON MIGRATION AND MILK SALES FROM NORTHERN KENYA

John McPeak and Cheryl Doss ()

No 19839, 2002 Annual meeting, July 28-31, Long Beach, CA from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Among the Gabra of Northern Kenya, men decide where to migrate with the household herds while women decide whether to sell milk. We test three models of household decision-making. The results suggest that household decisions are contested. Husbands appear to use migration decisions to resist their wive's access to income.
