Folbre blogs: “Nannies Under the Table”

Nancy Folbre

Nancy Folbre, economics, writes in the Economix blog at the New York Times about under-the-table employment of nannies and other household workers and how little is known about this part of our economy. Folbre is also quoted in a story about the stigma of being a housewife in a world economy where many women now work and take care of household chores.
