Three 45 On the top of the usual tax on a higher income through a lower transfer (but it leaves the child’s on the same utility level), there is this second tax of the merit good. 46 See for instance Zeldin (1995) on affection for children appearing at the turn of the 20th century in the US among the poorest classes of the population. 5) where his time was used to produce consumption, via earnings. 918 A. Laferrère and F. Wolff main cases may be considered. In the first, the parent is an (impure) altruist and the non-altruistic child is more than compensated for his effort in helping the parent.

48 That the transfer amount can rise with the child’s income in the case of exchange stands in contrast to the altruism model, where a richer child receives a lower gift. While a negative derivative ∂T /∂Yk is compatible both with the exchange and altruism motives, the empirical finding of a positive effect of Yk on T indicates the existence of exchange, or reciprocity, within the family. 49 Note that at the limit Uv = 0 (the parent is not only a constrained altruist, but a non-altruist) and this second regime of non-altruism can be written in the following way: max U = U (Yp − T , S) T ,S (44) under the participation constraint (42).

The parent’s utility U is defined over private consumption Cp and the different amount of services provided by each child Si (i ∈ {1, . . , n}). The parent’s wealth Yp finances Cp and a global bequest T to the n children. ,Sn ,T U = U (Cp , S1 , . . t. Cp = Yp − T (50) 924 A. Laferrère and F. Wolff The parent manipulates his children and uses the promised inheritance to influence ex ante their decisions (Hoddinott, 1992). t. Cki = Yki + ρki T (51) with VS < 0. Each child i receives a fraction ρki of T in exchange of the attention devoted to the parent.
