Abstract

[fre] La rationalité de la non-spécialisation dans les ménages. Une rupture avec la théorie beckérienne. . Les modèles microéconomiques établissent l'optimalité d'une spécialisation dans les ménages en supposant que les décisions d'affectation du temps peuvent être comprises comme le résultat d'un jeu coopératif. Un examen critique de ce choix théorique fait apparaître la pertinence d'une approche non coopérative. L'article développe alors un modèle non coopératif dans lequel la non-division du travail se révèle un choix de plus en plus fréquemment optimal à mesure que la probabilité de séparation et le coût relatif d'une division du travail augmentent. [eng] The optimality of a non specialization within households. A break in becker's theory continuity . . Microeconomic models imply that a sexual division of labor is optimal within "cooperative" families. This paper questions the assumption that household decisions are made cooperatively. Then, it proposes a non cooperative model to study infra-household allocation of time. Within this model, non specialization can be more and more often optimal when the relative cost of specialization and the divorce probability rise.
