No 20/2013, Working Papers from University of Verona, Department of Economics

Abstract: This study develops a household enterprise model extended to encompass recent advances in collective theory. We use a simulation model, in which production and consumption-leisure choices are represented along with the rule governing intra-household resource allocation, to analyze the income and wage responses of each family member. The household is treated as an equilibrium model whose accounts are based on a household social accounting matrix, and the social classes are the wife/husband classes. The simulation analysis illustrates the policy relevance of the collective approach to household behavior for inferring the impact of economic policies on individual welfare levels.
