Economics of gender and economic growth theory: The relationship between women-mothers and other consumer agents
This paper shows the main economic implications derived from an analytical distinction of women-mothers among the rest of consumers within the dynamics of a Ramsey-Cass Koopmans type model. Results imply that women-mothers reach lower levels of stationary consumption than the rest of economic agents. It is shown, however, that such asymmetry can be reduced if it is treated within the framework of the theory of nonexistence of labor market. On the contrary, the asymmetry remains if we work within the traditional Ramsey-Cass-Koopmans model. The basic assumption of this research is that women just differ from men in the exclusive possibility of gestation and birth.
