Chapter 13 examines the effects of fertility patterns on family finance in rural China. The author surveys the interdisciplinary literature on family fertility and household finance, and discusses an emerging literature that examines the experience in rural China. She summarizes evidence from studies using nationally representative data that explore a suite of household financial decisions including consumption, investment, remittance, and gift exchange, thereby presenting empirical evidence that the influences of offspring gender structure on household financial activities at various stages of a Chinese family’s lifecycle are both enormous and varied.
