The strategic bequest motive: evidence from SHARE
This paper examines whether the empirical evidence supports the strategic bequest motive, as opposed to pure altruism, using SHARE data on ten European countries. The availability of internationally comparable data, as in SHARE, allows exploiting the cross-country variability in inheritance laws and cultural backgrounds to identify the operation of a strategic bequest motive determining the attention that adult children provide to their elderly parents.
