Well no. Just not directly.
Had our kids been raised by incompetent mothers the GDP would likely be a lot lower.
Mothers and family upbringing play a huge role in a successful society. Its just not seen as directly as literally selling products through a business
I think we're coming up on tax time, when the media will spend a lot of time telling us what the "market value" of stay at home mom's is. They will probably throw out a figure of around $120k per year.
Meanwhile, they will ignore the husband who's busting his hump to earn $50k per year to support the wife and kids.
non-market activity is of no accountable monetary value
transactions are what generate monetary value
When was this picture made, 1950? Every woman and her mother works a fucking job these days.
