Abstract

We consider theoretically and empirically the allocation of time and money within the household. The novelty of our empirical work is that we have a survey which provides information on both time use and the allocation of some goods within the household, for the same households. We can consider whether a partner who enjoys more leisure also receives more consumption, which looks like the outcome of `power` within the household, or receives less consumption, which looks like differing tastes across households.
