About this title
Drawing on economic theory, the authors postulate that a family allocates work -- any work, be it housework, doing the shopping, or earning money outside the home -- on the basis of maximum utility to the family unit. Its ideas on utility are derived from such factors as its income, education, ideology. A carefully crafted research study confirms these ideas on the allocation of work and housework. The impact on the quality of family relationships of such allocations is also considered.
