Excerpt from description:

In this book, two economists examine the causes and potential cures of the child care problems that face [the U.S] today. Writing for policymakers, parents, and providers alike, Barbara R. Bergmann and Suzanne W. Helburn provide an in-depth look at the child care industry, identifying crucial problems such as quality of care and the high cost of even mediocre care. Moreover, the authors identify sources for change - including stronger regulatory procedures on providers and suppliers of care - and more government subsidies.
