This study develops a household enterprise model extended to encom- pass 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 re- sponses of each family member. The household is treated as an equilibrium model whose accounts are based on a collective household accounting matrix, with the so- cial dimension being 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 behavior and welfare. We also propose insightful comparisons with the unitary model to make the behavioral and welfare policy relevance of the collective approach evident.

Abstract

This study develops a household enterprise model extended to encom- pass 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 re- sponses of each family member. The household is treated as an equilibrium model whose accounts are based on a collective household accounting matrix, with the so- cial dimension being 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 behavior and welfare. We also propose insightful comparisons with the unitary model to make the behavioral and welfare policy relevance of the collective approach evident.
