Love and Economics - It Takes a Family to Raise a Village, PAPERBACK
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.”
