Love & Economics: It Takes a Family to Raise a Village 

by Jennifer Roback Morse PhD (Author)


Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse's pivotal book on the family.From the forward:“I wrote Love and Economics in the late 1990’s. My experience of raising a badly neglected adopted orphan son together with a birth daughter taught me that we economists had been taking the family far too much for granted…. Love and Economics makes a foundational argument that the family is an irreplaceable social institution. We cannot replace the married couple with a series of contracts among adults, as some libertarians and economists might argue. Nor can we replace the family with a series of government programs…. I hope that everyone who values the personal over the political and the family over the bureaucratic, will take the arguments of Love and Economics seriously.”
