Introduction

The Rethinking Macroeconomics Working Group of the Care Work and the Economy Project is bringing gender dimensions into macroeconomic models, particularly in the case of care provisioning. Teams of researchers have modified existing macroeconomic models to incorporate unpaid and paid care of children, the sick, disabled and the elderly in order to examine gendered impacts of specific economic policies on employment, inequality, and growth. These new, cutting edge macromodels demonstrate that care is economically important and help us better understand and more effectively model the links between care and standard economic variables and concerns.  Please find papers from our research teams below.
