Ungrateful Husbands and Idiot Economists

Think about how GDP is measured: If a woman looks after a house, and cares for her own children in that house, then she is not working and contributes nothing to the economy.



Interesting how similar the attitudes of the ungrateful husband and the economist who measures GDP.



The husband says, “You never contributed anything to the marriage.”

The economist says, “You never contributed anything to the economy.”
