Reallocation of resources between generations and genders in the market and non-market economy. The case of Italy.

Zannella M - J Econ Ageing (2015)

Bottom Line: In this article the National Transfer Accounts (NTA) method is used to develop a comprehensive account of resource reallocations between population members in Italy, encompassing the age and the gender perspective, the public and the familial institutional sectors as well as the market and non-market dimensions of the economy.The inclusion of the non-market economy, referring to household and care time, allows for an insight into the gender division of labour and the strength of intergenerational obligations in the Italian familistic welfare regime.Results highlight the existence of large flows of resources within the family both between genders and toward young generations, with men and women giving rise to considerable monetary and time transfers, respectively.

ABSTRACT

In this article the National Transfer Accounts (NTA) method is used to develop a comprehensive account of resource reallocations between population members in Italy, encompassing the age and the gender perspective, the public and the familial institutional sectors as well as the market and non-market dimensions of the economy. The inclusion of the non-market economy, referring to household and care time, allows for an insight into the gender division of labour and the strength of intergenerational obligations in the Italian familistic welfare regime. Results highlight the existence of large flows of resources within the family both between genders and toward young generations, with men and women giving rise to considerable monetary and time transfers, respectively.

f0015: Non market economic life cycle by gender, Italy 2008.

Mentions: Considering non-market economy changes the picture of gender and intergenerational relationships drastically (Fig. 3). It should be recalled that time consumption is assumed to be independent of gender and that it is estimated at the household level as a linear function of the number of household components by age (see Eq. (2)). This is clearly reflected in the existence of similar shapes of consumption for men and women, although if with slight different levels which have to be considered as an effect of households composition. Therefore, gender differences in the non-market economic life cycle and, consequently, in net transfers mostly depend on production.
