Parental Actions and Siblings' Inequality

No 1298, IDB Publications (Working Papers) from Inter-American Development Bank

Abstract: The model presented in the paper generates important implications concerning how the allocation of resources between children varies across income groups. In the model, poor and middle-income families tend to channel their resources into a few children whereas rich families (and perhaps very poor families as well) tend to allocate resources more evenly. As a result, poor and middle- income families tend to generate more inequality relative to richer families.
