Economic Social and Cultural Influences on the Status and Wellbeing of Indian Rural Wives AgEcon
Tisdell, Clement A.; Regmi, Gopal.
Examines the status and well being of wives in rural India using results from interviews. Surveys were conducted in three villages in the southwest of West Bengal and in three villages in the west of Orissa. The survey in West Bengal contained a large proportion of Santal tribals and the Oriyan survey was dominated by Kondh tribals. The relationships between variables representing economic, social and cultural factors are compared with ‘dependent’ variables representing the status of wives within their family and their wellbeing. Wellbeing is indicated by whether the basic needs of wives for food and medical care are met. Status of wives is indicated by their ‘control’ over family resources, whether or not they are restricted in joining social groups...

Prejudice against Female Children: Economics and Cultural Explanations, and Indian Evidence AgEcon
Tisdell, Clement A.; Regmi, Gopal.
Shows how economic theories based on parental self-interest may explain parental discrimination against daughters relative to sons. However, such theories often need to be adjusted (or even discarded) to allow for altruism of parents towards their children, and to take account of cultural influences on parental desires to have children of particular gender, and care equally for their children of different gender. The latter point is illustrated by a study of two different communities. In one situated in the Santal tribal belt I West Bengal, discrimination against daughters is found to be marked and accords (given the structure of society) with predictions of economic theories based on the pursuit of parental self-interest. By contrast, it is found that...

Push-and-Pull Migration and Satisficing versus Optimising Migratory Behaviour: A Review and Nepalese Evidence AgEcon
Tisdell, Clement A.; Regmi, Gopal.
Reviews major economic theories of migration concentrating on their behavioural assumptions. Most of these theories assume homogenous optimising behaviour by economic agents. By contrast, Lipton assumes heterogeneity of group behaviour - rich persons optimise whereas poor persons are more reactive than proactive. hence the rural poor are more likely to be influenced in their migratory decisions by push factors are rather than by pull with the position reversed for the rural rich. The former factors associated in this article with thresholds or satisficing and the latter with optimising. To some extent, Nepalese data supports Lipton's hypothesis. Similarly, Lipton's hypothesis about difference in remitting behaviour of migrants from poor families and from...
