Women, Work, and Economic Growth : Leveling the Playing Field
Rosenzweig , Oded Stark. The collection of chapters in the Handbook of Population and Family Economics and their organization reflect the most recent developments in economics pertaining to population issues and the family. The rationale, contents, and organization of the Handbook evolve from three premises. First, the family is the main arena in which population outcomes are forged. Second, there are important interactions and significant causal links across all demographic phenomena.
Third, the study of the size, composition, and growth of a population can benefit from the application of economic methodology and tools. The diversity and depth of the work reviewed and presented in the Handbook conveys both the progress that has been made by economists in understanding the forces shaping population processes, including the behavior of families, and the many questions, empirical and theoretical, that still remain.

Fiscal policy is the main means by which governments can redistribute resources and income or wealth and address different forms of inequality, including gender inequality in opportunities and outcomes. Through taxation and spending policies and incentives for the private sector, governments can influence household incomes and welfare—today through taxes, public services, and income transfer programs; tomorrow by helping build human and physical capital. Here we address the somewhat more limited issue of how tax and spending reforms could be used to achieve greater gender equality. We focus on two questions: First, what do we know about the incidence by gender of taxation and spending programs?
The ability to test for discrimination in the allocation of goods between boys and girls is hampered by a lack of data on intrahousehold distribution. The analysis presented here allows inferences about intrahousehold allocation to be made from household-level The analysis presented here allows inferences about intrahousehold allocation to be made from household-level expenditure data. For a given level of income, families with children will spend less on adult goods in order to purchase children's goods. If household purchasing favors boys over girls, smaller expenditures on adult goods would be made by families with boys as compared with those with girls. A method for determining "adult" goods is described, and the procedure for detecting gender bias is applied to data from Cote d'Ivoire and Thailand. The data show no evidence of discrimination between boys and girls in Cote d'Ivoire, and a small and statistically insignificant bias in favor of boys in Thailand. See Less -.

Poverty alleviation is a major objective of development. More than a fifth of the world's population lives in absolute poverty, and the majority of the poor live in rural areas. This volume studies what can be done for alleviating rural poverty. Four chapters address the measurement of poverty and inequality, including the use of household expenditure surveys and intra-household income distribution. Other chapters present case studies on strategies for rural development: provision of rural credit in Bangladesh and India; technical change in Philippine agriculture; contract farming in Thailand; and banana growers in the Windwards.
