    Abstract

    Este artículo trata dos ideas básicas. La primera es que el modelo de racionalidad aplicado a la fecundidad y la interacción entre cantidad y calidad no fueron formulados inicialmente por Becker, y aunque dicha relación hoy parece clara y evidente no es obvia. La segunda es que desde el comienzo el análisis de la fecundidad ha considerado el contexto institucional. Las críticas al modelo de Becker y los desarrollos posteriores refuerzan la importancia de las instituciones para explicar las variaciones de la fecundidad.
