Abstract

[spa] Tipos y modelos de herencia, y sus implicaciones, . por André Masson y Pierre Pestieau.. . En este artículo se présenta la taxonomía de los principales modelos de herencia considerados por los economistas, teniendo en cuenta la distinción conventional entre legado involuntario y legado voluntario, al igual que los diversos tipos y grados de altruismo. Acto seguido, para los cuatro modelos de herencia más corrientes, se presentan las implicaciones específicas que pueden tener en relación con la asignación de los recursos y la redistribución. [fre] Types et modèles d'héritage et leurs implications, . par André Masson, Pierre Pestieau.. . Cet article présente une taxonomie des principaux modèles d'héritage considérés par les économistes, qui tient compte de la distinction classique entre legs involontaire et legs volontaire ainsi que des différents types et degrés d'altruisme. Puis il donne pour quatre des modèles d'héritage les plus courants les implications spécifiques qu'ils peuvent avoir en termes d'allocation des ressources et de redistribution.
