In The Economic Organization of the Household, Professor Bryant examines the microeconomic principles at work in the institution of the family. In the first book to cover all the major elements of family economics, Bryant begins with a thorough analysis of household demand for and expenditures on goods and services and proceeds to a consideration of saving behavior. Then, in separate chapters, he treats household time allocation and production, human capital investment, fertility and, finally, marriage and divorce. In each case, he focuses on elaborating and explaining the economic models of household behavior. This book will be of interest to anyone who seeks a complete account of the economics of the family. It is cast at the intermediate microeconomics level and will be especially useful to upper division undergraduates and first year graduate students. Calculus is used in the end-notes to further develop the models under consideration but the body of the text is free of difficult math.
