The main part of this chapter discusses the household as an allocation mechanism. It has eight sections: (1) gender differentials among adults; (2) allocations among girls and boys; (3) bridewealth and dowry; (4) regional patterns of household allocations: the case of India; (5) marriage and inheritance in India; (6) bargaining theory as a framework for household choice; (7) the Nash programme: a formalization; and (8) bargaining versus maximization of well‐being within the household. An extra and separate section (designated Chapter *11) gives theoretical presentations on two aspects of the axiomatic bargaining theory: (1) the Nash bargaining solution; and (2) the Kalai–Smorodinsky bargaining solution.

Keywords:   bargaining, bargaining theory, boys, choice, dowry, gender, girls, households, India, inheritance, Kalai–Smorodinsky bargaining solution, marriage, Nash bargaining solution, resource allocation, well‐being
