Prof. Matthias Doepke, The Family in Macroeconomics

By using a dominant unit of account, agents can lower their exposure to mcroeconomics price risk, avoid costly default, and create more total surplus. Institutions such as the family, the clan, the guild, and the market organize who learns from whom.

The main winners are young, middle-class households with fixed-rate mortgage debt.

The key to implementing these extensions is to introduce multiple layers of off-path utility bounds. We conclude with an analysis of the role of the family as a driver of political and institutional change.

Exploitation is defined relative to a specific social welfare function. We develop a new theoretical link between inequality and growth. The model is used to determine whether government policies that affect the opportunity cost of education can account for cross-country variations in fertility decline. I argue that this welfare function best captures the conventional concept of exploitation and has useful properties for informing political choices regarding child labor.

Transfers to women are more likely to be beneficial when human capital, rather than physical capital or land, is the most important factor of production. Clans, Guilds, and Markets: In this paper, we discuss research on the long-run implications of such policies.

The Stochastic Growth Model by Koen Vermeylen – BookBoon This text presents the stochastic growth model, a stochastic version of the neoclassical growth model with microfoundations, and provides the backbone of a lot of macroeconomic models that are used in modern macroeconomic research.


Review of Economic StudiesJuly In recent years, support has been growing among rich-country governments and consumer groups for the use of trade policies, such as product boycotts and the imposition of international labor standards, to reduce child labor in poor countries.

Inflation, Redistribution, Monetary Policy, Housing. In the centuries leading up to the Industrial Revolution, Western Europe gradually pulled ahead of other world regions in terms of technological creativity, population growth, and income per capita.

The theory can account for the observation that in Britain regulations were first introduced after a period of rising wage inequality, and coincided with rapid fertility decline.

This study quantitatively assesses the effects of inflation through changes in the value of nominal assets. This book helps students to understand how real individuals actually work with economics.

In this chapter, we argue that family economics should be an integral part of macroeconomics, and that accounting for the family leads to new answers to classic macro questions.

Given this finding, we investigate the potential political-economic reasons behind the emergence and persistence of child-labor legislation.
