Unpaid Work and the Economy: A Gender Analysis of the Standards of Living
by Picchio, Antonella (2005)
[From Routledge] In economics, the voluntary sector is surprisingly understudied. In order to fully understand economics, unpaid and voluntary work needs to be taken into account and afforded the same status as paid activities. This book constitutes a rigorous economic analysis with special emphasis on gender issues and covers every conceivable angle of unpaid work and all its ramifications for the modern economy.
