The voluntary sector is surprisingly understudied in economics. 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. The unified vision that is offered by the leading array of contributors makes for a work of excellent quality. There is every chance that this book will become a seminal study on unpaid work and as such will provide a useful reference for students and academics involved in gender studies, econometrics, and consumption studies.

Reviews for Unpaid Work and the Economy: A Gender Analysis of the Standards of Living

'Both the editor and contributors to this volume should be congratulated. This well-argued book not only bids fundamentally to retheorize 'the economic' but also seeks to shape policy with its findings.' - Progress in Human Geography
