Economic Reforms and Gender-based Wage Inequality in the Presence of Factor Market Distortions

Sarbajit Chaudhuri () and Somasree Roychowdhury

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: A simple three-sector general equilibrium model has been developed with both male and female labour and factor market distortions. The effects of different liberalized economic policies have been examined on the gender-based wage inequality. The analysis finds that credit market reform and tariff reform produce favourable effects on the wage inequality while the liberalized investment policy becomes counterproductive. These results have important policy implications for a small open developing economy.
