argumentation, interpretative results suggest that a basic income complying with necessary individual modern day living standards will thus induce individuals to refrain from actively seeking a job if unemployed or even withdrawing from the labour market if presently employed. In this context, Hauser (2006, p. 339) expects a sharp decline of labour supply especially among groups such as the long-term unemployed, women looking after children, elderly employees, and possibly young entrants to the labour market. In addition, he claims that higher tax rates in connection with a

1 Introduction How does the birth of children affect household labor supply and income? An increase in nursing time and childcare costs may strain a household budget, or reduce its time resource and affect intra-household specialization. Moreover, it is documented that many women leave the labor market after giving birth. Indeed, many studies have analyzed the relationship between childbirth and female labor supply (i.e. Korenman and Neumark 1992 ; Waldfogel 1995 , 1998 ; Lundberg and Rose 2000 ; Kawaguchi 2001 ) and found that the birth of children

1 Introduction The relationship between changes in non-labor income and labor effort is important for understanding both the independent behavioral effects of changes in nonlabor income, and for yielding insights into the income effect component of the total labor supply response to changes in labor income. Direct inferences about compensated wage elasticities from non-labor income effects requires similar behavioral responses across income sources, most notably a similar propensity to consume leisure out of non-labor income.

Keywords: Optimal control, integral equations with delays and advances, vintage capital

1 Introduction Three broad types of models form the foundation of most economic research on volunteer labour supply (see, e.g., Z IEMEK , 2006 ): the public-goods model ( R OBERTS , 1984 ), ( B ERGSTROM et al., 1986 ), ( D UNCAN , 1999 ), the private-consumption model ( A ndreoni 1989 , 1990 ; H ARBAUGH , 1998 ), and the human-capital model ( M ENCHIK and W EISBROD , 1987 ). In a prototype public-goods model, a volunteer contributes to and derives utility from the total provision of a public good. Because non-excludability and non-rivalry in consumption are

Fertility, Female Labor Supply, and Family Policy‡ Hans Fehr University of Würzburg CESifo Netspar Daniela Ujhelyiova University of Würzburg Abstract. The present paper develops an overlapping generations general equilibrium model for Germany in order to study the impact of public policy on household labor supply and fertility decisions. Starting from a benchmark equilibrium which reflects the current German family policy regime we introduce various reforms of the tax and child benefit system and quantify the consequences for birth rates and female labor supply
