It’s the Economy, Honey: The Economics of Family Life
Ever feel that your family is an entire micro economy of its own? Well it is and what’s more, it’s the subject of fascinating new research, who pays the bills, who saves, who take decisions, who is happy, why do we break up and why fewer and fewer of us are getting married every year.
More than just world renowned economists, as if that was not enough, Justin Wolfers and Betsey Stevenson are also an economic power couple with two children, juggling careers, being top ranked professors, advising President and doing the dishes. They’ve also made the economics of parenting the centre of a whole new strand of economic research.
Join this brilliant husband and wife, as we tease out the most significant economic unit on earth, the family, how it works, how it anchors the whole economy and how we can all get through the week and remain slightly sane!
