Synopsis: Love and Economics: It Takes a Family to Raise a Village, Newly released in paperback. (Originally entitled, Love and Economics: Why the Laissez-Faire Family Doesn t Work.) The economy, which appears to 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 the 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.

About the Author: Jennifer Roback Morse, Phd.D. brings a unique voice to discussions of love, marriage, sexuality and the family. A committed career woman before having children, she earned a doctorate in economics, and spent fifteen years teaching at Yale University and George Mason University. In 1991, she and her husband adopted a two year old Romanian boy, and gave birth to a baby girl. She left her full-time university teaching post in 1996 to move with her family to California. She was a Research Fellow at Stanford University s Hoover Institution, and is currently the Senior Research Fellow in Economics at the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty. Until August 2006, Dr. Morse and her husband were foster parents for San Diego County, where they now reside. Drawing on her personal experience, as well as the best of modern social science research, Dr. Morse inspires and informs audiences worldwide. She was a contributor to The Meaning of Marriage, a volume based on a conference at Princeton University and which has been credited with re-presenting the case for marriage as a positive institution in the public interest. Her previous book, Smart Sex: Finding Life-long Love in a Hook-up World, was featured on the Dr. Laura and Tammy Bruce programs. She was one of a handful of Americans chosen to lecture at the Fifth World Meeting of Families in Valencia, Spain, sponsored by the Pontifical Council on the Family in 2006.
