Collective household labor supply: nonparticipation and income taxation
AbstractIn this paper, we adopt the usual assumptions of the collective approach, i.e. individualism and efficiency, to study household labor supply. The theoretical innovation is twofold. First, we incorporate the decision to participate in the labor market in the initial setting. Second, we abandon the assumption of linearity of the budget constraint. We show that (i) structural elements such as preferences or the outcome of the decision process can be recovered, and (ii) testable restrictions are generated from the observation of the household labor supplies. We also examine, for this model, how to simulate the incidence of fiscal reforms. Dans cet article, nous adoptons les hypothÃ¨ses habituelles de l'approche collective, Ã savoir, l'individualisme et l'efficacitÃ©, pour Ã©tudier l'offre de travail du mÃ©nage. L'innovation thÃ©orique est double. D'une part, nous incorporons dans le cadre initial la dÃ©cision de participer au marchÃ© du travail. D'autre part, nous abandonnons l'hypothÃ¨se de linÃ©aritÃ© de la contrainte budgetaire. Nous montrons alors que (i) des Ã©lÃ©ments structurels du processus de dÃ©cision peuvent Ãªtre retrouvÃ©s, et (ii) des restrictions testables sont gÃ©nÃ©rÃ©es de l'observation des offres de travail du mÃ©nage. Nous examinons Ã©galement, pour ce modÃ¨le, comment faire des simulations de rÃ©formes fiscales.
