They find resource allocations to be Pareto efficient. French consumption data also seem consistent with this assumption and thus with the collective framework. According to Francois Bourguignon et al. (1993) full-time working couples consume such that marginal utility is the same across partners. As for the production aspect, on the contrary, Christopher Udry (1996) finds that in Burkina Faso plots controlled by women are farmed less labor intensively than those controlled by men within the same household.

The dynamic framework seems to be most appropriate for explaining labor force participation of many women who not only consider actual wage income but also the human capital aspect of job experience as well as their future bargaining power within the household when making time use decisions. Educational investments or labor supply then become strategic variables since they affect future bargaining power via the accumulation of human capital. The strategic aspect of supplying labor is elaborated in Chapter 4 where female employment is modeled in a dynamic framework and the impact of bargaining considerations on time use is investigated empirically.

The family phase, time allocation decisions (esp. housework vs. labor market activity) are determined through Nash bargaining between partners with separation as their threat point. In this model rational individuals not only tend to overinvest in human capital during the first period of life but also have an incentive to choose suboptimal time patterns at the beginning of the family phase should this improve their bargaining position in the following period. This result is due to an asymmetry of the learning effects from market work versus housework and to the asymmetry of the marketability of the different labor skills.
