Tiger Moms and Helicopter Parents: We conclude with an analysis of macroeconkmics role of the family as a driver of political and institutional change.

Apart from influencing fertility, the policies also have large effects on the evolution of the income distribution in the course of development.

To answer this question, this paper develops a unified growth model which delivers a transition from stagnation to growth, accompanied by declining fertility.

We develop a quantitative dynamic general equilibrium model with endogenous fertility and female labor-force participation decisions. We focus on two sources of asymmetries: Across countries, men usually desire larger families than women do. What’s in It for Men? We show that men may agree to relinquish some of their power once technological change increases the importance of human capital.

We review a number of recent economic theories which analyze the transition from a preindustrial world characterized by high fertility, stationary standards of living, and rigid social hierarchies to modern capitalism.

In contrast, under an inclusive welfare function, which places additional weight on the welfare of children, child labor is always exploitative. We argue that even though the laissez-faire equilibrium may be inefficient, there are usually better policies to cure these inefficiencies than the imposition of a child-labor ban.
