Summary

Post Keynesian analysis of monetary production have not provided much attention to households as institutions, while a good deal of the literature in feminist economics discusses households in a strictly microeconomic context, with little consideration of monetary phenomena. This book, a unique study of the capitalist economy, utilizes a distinctive combination of Post Keynesian, institutional and gender analysis to examine household economics in capitalist society in order to flesh out the gaps in each. The author poses questions that cut across rigidly determined areas of inquiry, such as gender and money and micro- and macroeconomic analysis. She grounds the discussion of households and their social and financial relations within a monetary theory of production, provides many methodological, theoretical, and policy formulation insights to establish a framework that illuminates current problems of household debt. The book connects the three aforementioned traditions in heterodox economics and offers to the reader a stimulating discussion of contemporary capitalist relations. Academics, post-graduate and undergraduate readers in institutional, Post Keynesian, social and feminist economics will enjoy the new perspectives in this book.
