Details

The economy, which appears to be a series of impersonal exchanges of material objects among strangers, is actually based upon love. The political order, which seems to be about power, actually depends upon loving families. "It Takes a Village to Raise a Child" was Hillary Clinton's Big Idea, designed to soften us up for another round of expensive and intrusive Federal programs. Economist Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse thinks Mrs. Clinton has things exactly backwards: It Takes a Family to Raise a Village. Without the family, there won't even be a village.

Drawing on the experience of neglected orphans, Dr. Morse shows that mothers create the basic attachments that lay the groundwork for the development of the conscience. Contrary to Mrs. Clinton's views, only the family can socialize children to use their freedom responsibly. No social program can take the place of mothers and fathers, working together as a team. Stay-at-home mothers get pounded by the feminists and squeezed by the economy. Government and media call upon self-appointed experts, not stay-at-home moms, for discussions of family policy. Dr. Morse champions all those parents who sacrifice for their children.

Read Love and Economics. Give it to a friend. Mothers and fathers alike will be grateful to you for sharing Dr. Morse's defense of their underappreciated job.
