"The Economics of the Family" is a survey of the most recent literature in a rapidly expanding field. It includes material on efficiency comparisons between family and non-family households, household size, the marriage contract and birth timing. It also contains a full treatment of the effects of taxes and benefits on the family, and maintains a balance between theory and discussion of practical implications throughout.
