dc.description.abstractThis paper augments the existing literature on trade and child labor by exploring the effects ofterms of trade changes in the context of a three good general equilibrium model, where oneof the goods is a non-traded good. We find that under quasi-linear preferences the effect ofthe terms of trade on child labor depends critically on the pattern of substitutability (orcomplementarity) in the excess demand functions between the export good and the nontradedgood. We extend the analysis to the case of homothetic preferences and find that thebasic result is somewhat modified in a context where the marginal utility of income is affectedby the terms of trade. We also extend the analysis to the case where factors move freelybetween the three goods as in a Heckscher-Ohlin type framework. Finally, we show that abalanced budget policy of taxing the education of skilled families and subsidizing theeducation of unskilled families must reduce child labor without any impact on aggregatewelfare.en_US
