Review of Economics of the Household

The Review of Economics of the Household is a peer-reviewed academic journal established in 2001 by Shoshana Grossbard and first published in 2003. It covers research on household economics, including empirical and theoretical research on the economic behavior and decision-making processes of single and multi-person households. Articles published deal with consumption, savings, labor supply and other time uses, marriage and divorce, demand for health and other forms of human capital, fertility and investment in children's human capital, households and environmental economics, economics of migration, economic development, and economics of religion. It also publishes articles on household economics from the perspective of the history of economic thought and emphasizes effects of both micro- and macro-economic policy instruments.[1][2] The original advisory board included Gary Becker and Jacob Mincer, the founders of the Columbia School of Household Economics often called the New Home Economics, as well as another Nobel prize winner, Clive Granger. Co-editor Michael Grossman, associate editor Barry Chiswick, and advisory board member Victor Fuchs are prominent contributors to the Columbia School of Household Economics.
