About this product
- DescriptionFrom Malthus to Becker, the ecomic approach to population growth and its interactions with the surrounding ecomic environment has undergone a major transformation. Population Ecomics elucidates the theory behind this shift and the consequences for ecomic policy.Razin and Sadka systematically examine the microecomic implications of people's decisions about how many children to have and how to provide for them on population trends and social issues of population policy. The authors analyze how these decisions affect labor supply, consumption, savings and bequests, investments in human capital, and ecomic growth, along with related new issues such as migration and income redistribution across generations, in an integrated microecomic framework.Population Ecomics is a thoroughly modern treatment of population ecomics as a field in public ecomics. It integrates and extends Marc Nerlove's Household and Ecomy: Welfare Ecomics of Endogeus Fertility, as well as work written jointly with colleagues that has appeared in various journals and other publications.
