Endogenous Population in a Land-Constrained Economy - Introduction and Summary
Abstract: A short review of different types of motives in fertility
decisions is given, followed by a discussion on the characteristics of
societies where the insurance and producer goods motives are important.
Three models investigating the effects of different types of policy
interventions in such societies are reviewed. The policies analyzed include
foreign aid, agricultural reform and exogenous reductions in child
mortality. Recent trends in fertility patterns are riefly discussed.
