Abstract1 This article compares how different types of models—Walrasian and heterodox—have integrated unpaid labour and, more specifically, care, as an economic activity. The article will discuss four models that have, each in their own way, incorporated unpaid labour, or care, as a variable, a sector, or parameter. The analysis of these model experiences will both reveal insights into the role of models in general, and appear to shed light on unpaid labour and caring as particular economic activities, with their own behavioural specifications and relationships to other economic variables.
