Economics, Love, and Family Values: Nancy Folbre and Jennifer Roback Morse on the Invisible Heart
By A. M. C. Waterman
This article appeared in the Winter 2003 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Economists Nancy Folbre and Jennifer Roback Morse stand far apart on the political spectrum, but their recent books (Folbre’s The Invisible Heart: Economics and Family Values and Morse’s Love and Economics: Why the Laissez-Faire Family Doesn’t Work) offer complementary insights into economics, the family and love. On a superficial reading, they line up on opposite sides of the “culture wars” that divide American intellectuals, but a closer reading reveals that their differences are more apparent than real.
