Abstract The consideration of mortality changes equilibrium with unilateral
gifts in the economics of family regulation. Expressions for each
spouse’s allocation to the common good are obtained that are
consistent with the pre-eminent role of mortality in the fertility
decline. The other determinant of equilibrium is the husband–wife
productivity ratio. Furthermore, in a context of demographic
transition, the adjustment of allocations to their equilibrium
values may be not instantaneous, and the transition resembles the
pursuit of a moving target rather than a shift in equilibrium. One
consequence is the lack of correlation between the fertility decline
and economic variables.
