抄録: The family, within which unpaid care work is carried out mostly by women, is again an important topic. This paper investigates the meaning of unpaid care work in social reproduction, and examines the concept of economic efficiency. The ‘gender budget’, which is analyzed here from the macroeconomic perspective, is a gender mainstreaming device and a notable challenge to orthodox budgets in terms of integrating the care sector into the ordinary budget and thus making care work visible. It is also an attempt to convert economic efficiency to social efficiency. In so doing, it induces criticism of the methodology of modern economics. The paper umphasises that understanding requires us to recognize that the family is a 'key economic and social institution'(Himmelweit 2000) and moreover, that it has relative autonomy from the market economy(Humphries and Rubery 1984) in terms of welfare provision for family members. Care work performed mostly by women is not a passive, but an active and decisive factor in the social reproduction.
