Child Care and Economic Development: Markets, Households, and Public Policy
Author: MILDRED E. WARNER
Published in IJED, Vol. 9 No. 3
Child care is a critical community infrastructure important for economic development and family wellbeing. Increased economic interest is being focused on the role of child care in economic development. This requires attention to the structure of the sector, the nature of parental demand and the role of government policy. But it also requires attention to non-market household care. Examples from New York State are presented as context for a set of articles looking at these issues in the U.S. and Canada. The challenges and benefits of an economic development frame are discussed.
