Notes
  • Women are fecund for a shorter period of their lives than men. In monogamous societies with divorce and remarriage, fecund women are relatively scarce. This paper studies how parents, who maximize discounted dynastic consumption, invest in the survival of their sons and daughters. The theory also generates endogenous sex ratios, income class sizes, and population growth. (Copyright: Elsevier)
