New and excellent manuscript on the economics of the family

By Martin Browning, Pierre-André Chiappori, and Yoram Weiss, you will find it here, on-line and free.  Perhaps in this post-Freakonomics era you are jaded and feel you have seen too many “economics of the family” books.  This is a scholarly rather than popular manuscript, and it is full of data and (simple) models.  At some point it will come out from Cambridge University Press.

For the pointer I thank Scott Cunningham; “All of the models of household production, bargaining, sorting in marriage and dating, and the numerous other strands within this literature have been finally brought together into one place.”
