Portfolio decomposition and intrahousehold environments: evidence from Bangladesh
Using a survey data from Bangladesh, this paper employs a simple decomposition method to investigate the possible role of inequality in husband and wife's portfolio holdings to various intrahousehold issues. Results indicate that wives' intrahousehold environments are affected more by their portfolio than by their husband's asset and income holdings. Wives who have inherited plots from their parents-in-law appear to belong to the better off group as well.
