31 Juillet 2017

Marion Goussé, professeure au département d’économique, et ses co-auteurs Nicolas Jacquemet (Paris School of Economics et Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne) et Jean-Marc Robin (Sciences Po et University College London) ont vu leur article intitulé « Marriage, Labor Supply, and Home Production » accepté pour publication dans la très prestigieuse revue Econometrica.

Il est à noter que Nicolas Jacquemet est un ancien étudiant du département d’économique de l'Université Laval, il avait réalisé son doctorat sous la cotutelle de M. Bernard Fortin, professeur au département.

Voici un résumé de l'article :

"We develop a search model of marriage where men and women draw utility from private consumption and leisure, and from a non-market good that is produced in the home using time resources. We condition individual decisions on wages, education and an index of family attitudes. A match-specific, stochastic bliss shock induces variation in matching given wages, education and family values, and triggers renegotiation and divorce. Using BHPS (1991-2008) data, we take as given changes in wages, education and family values by gender, and study their impact on marriage decisions and intrahousehold resource allocation. The model allows to evaluate how much of the observed gender differences in labor supply results from wages, education and family attitudes. We find that family attitudes is a strong determinant of comparative advantages in home production of men and women, whereas education complementarities induce assortative mating through preferences."
