Reviews

"Nancy Folbre focuses on questions that most economists never think about: how and why people form overlapping groups that influence and limit what they want, how they may behave, and what they get. She has sharp and plausible things to say about group solidarity and group conflict and how they have affected the workings of economic institutions. Anyone would be a better economist, or just a clearer thinker, after reading this book." -Robert M. Solow, Professor of Economics, MIT, and Nobel Laureate in Economics "Nancy Folbre, offers a provocative rejoinder to standard economic analyses that focus primarily on market forces and wage labor, thereby marginalizing women and children and devaluing the work they perform in the home and community." -"The Women's Review of Books ""Who Pays for the Kids?, by University of Massachussetts economist Nancy Folbre, offers a provocative rejoinder to standard economic analyses that focus primarily on market forces and wage labor, thereby marginalizing women and children and devaluing the work they perform in the home and community." -"The Women's Review of Books "This book could well serve as a provocative starting point for a graduate (or perhaps, in some cases, a senior level) seminar. It could be relevant in economics, family economics, women's studies, poverty courses, or modern history and provide a focus on women in the economy or perhaps on emerging work/family issues." -"The Journal Of Consumer Affairs "There is a mass of valuable information collected here." -"NWSA Journal
