Child Gender and Parental Borrowing: Evidence from India
Isabelle Guérin and
No 11-038, Working Papers CEB from ULB -- Universite Libre de Bruxelles
The unequal treatment of children is not gender neutral from the parent side. Our results show that women try to compensate through debt for the unbalanced situation faced by their daughters compared to their sons. However, the lack of symmetry between mothers' and fathers' financial situations leads to the perpetuation of gender inequality through generations.
