Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A two-volume collection of readings (facsimile reprints) which trace some of the ideas that have helped to adapt economic theory and methods to analyze the determinants and consequences of demographic behavior and to relate these behaviors to investments in human capital that account for much of modern economic growth. Volume I discusses estimation of wage functions and returns to human capital; length of life, stature and sickness; individual and household production and consumption; and unified and bargaining approaches. Volume II covers life cycle choices; fertility and investments in child quality; gender gap in human capital; wage structures by cohort size and skills; pre- industrial economic-demographic equilibrium; economic-demographic interactions in today's low-income countries; and savings, intergenerational exchange and aging. Both volumes contain a name index but no subject index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
