Course Purpose:

Household economics is a branch of economics that studies outcomes of 
household decision-making and the processes by which households make 
decisions.

Household outcomes that have been analyzed with economic 
analysis include  consumption, labor supply and other uses of time, 
household formation (marriage and cohabitation) and dissolution, demand for 
health and other forms of human capital, fertility and investment in 
children's human capital, demand for environmental and other public goods, 
migration, and demand for religiosity.

After an introduction and presentation of the conceptual framework based on some of Gary Becker's theories of the family the course will address the following outcomes:

- Marriage,

- Labor supply,

- Household production, and

- Household finance.

An overview of the policies and performance of the Review of Economics of the Household, the journal edited by Prof. Grossbard, will also be included in the course.
