Gender differences in education in a dynamic household bargaining model

E. Echevarria and Antonio Merlo ()

No 195, Staff Report from Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis

Abstract: We interpret observed gender differences in education as the equilibrium outcome of a two-sex overlapping generations model where men and women of each generation bargain over consumption, number of children, and investment in education of their children conditional on gender. This model represents a new framework for the analysis of the process of intrahousehold decision making in an intergenerational setting.
