"Having won its intellectual battle for the market, London's Institute of Economic Affairs has turned its attention to the social underpinnings of a free society" Martin Wolf, The Financial Times. "Tougher policies to promote family life are being demanded by Tory MPs following a report accusing the Government of discriminating against married couples in favour of lone parents...The study...claims that many single mothers are discouraged from marrying because they will lose more in benefits than they would gain from a husband's income" The Daily Telegraph. "The rise of disorder and criminal conduct among young men has exactly coincided with their release from the social controls that formerly made husbands and fathers"Times Literary Supplement. "Patricia Morgan highlights how the lowering of tax bands, the cutting of tax rates and the removal of allowances during the 1980s mainly benefited single people and double-income couples" The Independent. "The report's most awkward evidence for ministers to rebut is its use of official DSS figures to show that a working lone parent ...is always better off than a married couple where the wife stays at home to care for the children" The Guardian. "This book is recommended reading for those researchers interested in the economics of lone parenthood" The Economic Journal.
