Summary
"Surveying the field of the economics of the household, the second edition of this text reviews the theory of the consumer at the intermediate undergraduate level. The text applies and extends the theory to consumer demand and expenditures; consumption and saving; time allocation among market work, home work, and leisure; human capital emphasizing investment in education, children and health; fertility; marriage; and divorce. Influenced by Gary Becker and his associates, the models developed are used to help explain modern U.S. trends in family behavior. Topics are discussed with the aid of geometry and a little algebra. For those with a background in calculus, mathematical endnotes provide the models on which the text discussions are based and interesting applications beyond the scope of the text. The work is suitable for upper-level undergraduates in economics, consumer economics, and public policy programs. The text is also useful as an introduction to the economics of the family for graduate students in sociology, demography, and the policy sciences."--BOOK JACKET
