Pr. David de la Croix has published a new book entitled :" Fertility, Education, Growth, and Sustainability".
This book provides a set of general equilibrium models where heterogeneous households rationally choose their number of children. We show that if indeed fertility is not only determined by exogenous cultural factors but responds to economic incentives, it has important consequences for inequality, education, and sustainability. A more detailed summary can be found in this file .
