Gender Differences in Education in a Dynamic Household Bargaining Model

Gender Differences in Education in a Dynamic Household Bargaining Model We explore the issue of gender differences in education in the context 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. We show that the gender difference implied by our model is smaller than the one that would result from a pure investment model. We use our model to estimate the cost to a woman of having a child. The estimate we obtain is about 5% of the working lifetime of a woman. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Economic Review Wiley

Abstract

We explore the issue of gender differences in education in the context 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. We show that the gender difference implied by our model is smaller than the one that would result from a pure investment model. We use our model to estimate the cost to a woman of having a child. The estimate we obtain is about 5% of the working lifetime of a woman.
