Example text

Scholars have focused on developing and refining measures and methods with the goal of creating a more complete understanding of economic fluctuations by gender, household composition, and across the life cycle, giving value to the economic contributions that have largely been made by women. Traditional measures of economic activity have not included nonmarket activities, such as household production, largely because of inadequate measures. Many economists, including the creator of GDP, Simon Kuznets (1934), agreed that without household production, economic indicators were incomplete.

Estimating time transfers then becomes a crucial element in the analysis of the intergenerational economy. Here we propose an analogous quantity for time use. 30 2 Time is Economically Valuable: Production, Consumption and Transfers … Fig. 3 Estimated profiles of life cycle time deficit, by age and country, for Austria (1992, n = 25,233), France (1998, n = 15,441), Germany (2001, n = 35,813), Italy (2002, n = 51,206), Spain (2002, n = 46,774).

Later in life, as people’s health deteriorates, a number of activities like gardening or personal care are more likely to be purchased via the market.

For instance, gender differences are larger in Southern Europe than in Nordic countries. Analogously, the variability by educational attainment is more evident in Southern Europe.
