Family Action Network Seminars


Two more interesting seminars from the Family Action Network:

“When it comes to parenting, people do not usually think of economics. Yet, economics is a social science that aims to understand how people make decisions, and the decisions we make as parents are among the most important ones we face… In writing this book, we draw not only on empirical data and our economic training, but also on our own experience as parents, and, earlier in life, as children,” (Doepke and Zilibotti).

TWO EVENTS: Love, Money, and Parenting: How Economics Explains the Way We Raise Our Kids – Tuesday, February 11, 2020, 7:00 PM and GRAND ROUNDS: “Parenting in the Age of Inequality: Is Intensive, Achievement-oriented Parenting a Rational Response to a Changing World?” Wednesday, February 12, 9-10:30 AM. Both events will take place at New Trier High School, Northfield. We hope to see you there, FAN community!”
