The new issue of National Review carries my profile of Jennifer Roback Morse, the free-market economist who thinks family breakdown is at the root of many social ills.
Morse refuses to speak in code. … Here’s how she talks about single motherhood, for example: “There’s no such thing as a single parent. They’ve become dependent on other people in commercial transactions, such as their employers and child-care providers. A single mother may look like she’s doing so much ‘on her own,’ but she has merely commercialized the things the father would have done.”
