Households, Work & Economic Change: A Comparative Institutional Perspective

by

Households, Work & Economic Change: A Comparative Institutional Perspective Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book argues that contemporary economic and political change make household level behaviour increasingly significant in the economy. The book investigates interrelations between household and economic change. The conclusions which emerge from these investigations are relevant to policy makers in both social democratic and neo-liberal countries. The comparative approach taken in the book is amenable to the application of institutional theory, which is used to analyse work. The results are interesting to students of economics, political science, sociology and geography, as well as to research and policy specialists from these disciplines.

Book News Annotation:

Argues that contemporary and political change make household-level behavior increasingly significant in the economy; investigates the interrelations between the household and economic change; and generates conclusions that are relevant to policy makers in social democratic and neo-liberal countries and to social scientists in a number of disciplines. Uses a comparative approach that is amenable to the application of institutional theory, which is used to analyze work. Produced by a team of English and Norwegian researchers who combined findings from a number of independent projects in their two countries.
