Care Work and the Economy is producing new research and developing innovative analytic tools to advance our understanding of care work –care of children, the sick and disabled, and the elderly and to demonstrate how integrating care into policy tools such as macromodels provide a more comprehensive understanding of policy impacts on growth, distribution, and gender equality.
