Work in the Home

Do we value the work that takes place in the home?
We often talk about a work/life balance and we can view our ‘professional’ and ‘home’ lives as quite separate, but a lot of work takes place in the home. Living together can give us a comparative advantage as we pool our resources and benefit mutually from each other’s effort, but the division of labor in the home, especially between genders, and how that work is valued has a big effect on our economies and cultures.
