Title: The economic effects of divorce
Authors: Mifsud, Maria
Keywords: Malta -- Economic conditions -- 20th century
Divorce -- Social aspects
Issue Date: 2011
Abstract: Despite the array of theoretical and empirical research on the social effects of divorce, such research capturing the wide spectrum of economic effects of divorce is very limited. This dissertation tries to give a background of the existing theoretical work in this regard while giving a framework and analysis of the current empirical work. The main conclusion that emerges following a cross-country review is that divorce should not be the first best solution to family fragmentation as it impinges negatively on the individual, society and the government.
