  • Parental Leave Policies, Welfare and the Distribution of Income with Anna Fruttero.

This paper uses a general equilibrium model of marriage and divorce to assess how public policies on maternity and paternity leave and leave benefits affect intra-household decision making, family structure, intergenerational mobility and the distribution of income. We calibrated our model to replicate some characteristics relevant to the interaction between the marriage and labor market. We start with a benchmark economy in which women take time off with their children. We then analyze how this economy is affected by three different parental leave policies: availability of paternity leave, paid maternity leave benefits and paid paternity and maternity leave benefits
