Introduction

Author: CATALINA AMUEDO-DORANTES AND JEAN KIMMEL
Published in PFM, Vol. 5 No. 1

This introduction summarizes the five manuscripts included in this special volume
titled “The Family in Public Finance.” Included in the special issue are
international comparisons of work family policies, the tax treatment of families
versus individuals, and the role that flexible work schedules may play in fertility
decisions. Additionally, there are two country-specific studies, one examining the
role of the public budget in family planning in Spain, and one examining parents’
willingness to pay for their children’s postsecondary education in relation to the
generosity of government subsidies.
