Within classical economics in particular there has been a core assumption that the prototypical human being is a self-sufficient rational economic man (sic) (Folbre, 1994). There has been no serious account taken of the reality of dependency for all human Kathleen Lynch and Judy Walsh 37 beings, both in childhood and at times of illness and infirmity (Badgett and Folbre, 1999). 15 The objective of this chapter is to extend the work of feminist scholars by analysing the differences between forms of care, especially between what is and is not commodifiable in the sense that it can be provided on a paid-for basis.
In recent years data collection on unremunerated work, currently outside most national accounting systems, has been undertaken in several countries with a view to explicitly recognising and incorporating the economic contribution of unpaid work. But the emphasis on market activity remains, epitomised in Pigou’s (1932) view that gross domestic product decreases when a man marries his housekeeper, and the crucial interdependency between paid and unpaid economic activities is underplayed. The unpaid domestic sector provides caring services directly to household members, as well as to the wider community, that contribute to individual socialisation and to the production and maintenance of human capabilities, thereby developing ‘the social fabric, the sense of community, civic responsibility and norms that maintain trust, goodwill, and social order’ (Himmelweit, 2002).
Waring (1988), Eisner (1989), Ironmonger (1996) and others pioneered approaches to computing the value of unpaid work into satellite accounts that are consistent with the national account framework. In addition to the restrictive definition of economic activity in national accounts, part of the problem is the notion of value itself. In economics, value is defined in terms of market value, making it difficult to assign a value to goods and services that are not marketed. This is solvable for goods and services that could be sold on the market, such as subsistence crops or garden vegetables consumed by the producers, as a market value can be imputed for them.
