Valuing children : rethinking the economics of the family by Nancy Folbre( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description -- Nancy Folbre challenges the conventional economist's assumption that parents have children for the same reason that they acquire pets--primarily for the pleasure of their company. Children become the workers and taxpayers of the next generation, and "investments" in them offer a significant payback to other participants in the economy. Yet parents, especially mothers, pay most of the costs. The high price of childrearing pushes many families into poverty, often with adverse consequences for children themselves. Parents spend time as well as money on children. Yet most estimates of the "cost" of children ignore the value of this time. Folbre provides a startlingly high but entirely credible estimate of the value of parental time per child by asking what it would cost to purchase a comparable substitute for it. She also emphasizes the need for better accounting of public expenditure on children over the life cycle and describes the need to rethink the very structure and logic of the welfare state. A new institutional structure could promote more cooperative, sustainable, and efficient commitments to the next generation

Greed, lust & gender : a history of economic ideas by Nancy Folbre( Book )

The history of Western economic ideas shows that men have given themselves more cultural permission than women for the pursuit of both economic and sexual self-interest. This book brings women's work, their sexuality, and their ideas, into the center of the dialectic between economic history and the history of economic ideas.--[book jacket]

Once upon a time, students who were willing and able to work hard could obtain an affordable, high-quality education at a public university. Those times are gone. Intensified admissions competition coupled with opposition to public spending has scorched every campus. Budget cuts, tuition hikes, and debt burdens are undermining the best path to upward mobility that this country ever built. But despite all of this, Americans still embrace ideals of equal opportunity and know that higher education represents a public good. Students, faculty, staff, and advocates are beginning to build political co

De la différence des sexes en économie politique by Nancy Folbre( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait de la couverture : "Nancy flobre, économiste féministe, américaine, s'intéresse à la part disproportionnée de travail non marchand que les femmes assument en mêm temps que leur travail rémunéré. Bien qu'il représente près de la moitié du travail accompli par les femmes, et qu'il constitue la base de l'économie marchande, il n'est pas comptabilisé dans le PNB. De ce fait, sur le marché du travail, les femmes sont prolétarisées et bien souvent écartées des postes de responsabilités. Le phénomène peut être aussi observé à travers les répercussions de la hausse des coûts de la famille. ainsi, Nancy Folbre invite à repenser l'Etat-providence afin de reconnaître la valeur du travail familial, et à développer les aides pour la prise en charge des enfants, sans diminuer les aides aux personnes âgées. Elle prône la restructuration du travail rémunéré pour atteindre l'égalité hommes-femmes. Par ailleurs, le travail de proximité - de prise en charge des autres, des enfants et des personnes âgées notamment -, n'est pas marchand mais affectif car il est lié à l'altruisme, à la réciprocité et à la responsabilité. Peu rémunéré, il est imposé aux femmes par le biais des normes sociales qui provoquent des discriminations."
