A sample of Parentonomics

When Justin Wolfers contacted me a couple of days ago that he was thinking of writing a post about this blog on the NYT Freakonomics blog, I thought this would be a great opportunity to share a sample of Parentonomics (which is coming out here in Australia in August). Here is Justin's post and click here and you can read Chapter 7 of Parentonomics. It encompasses page 69 that Tyler Cowen argued was what you should read rather than judging a book by its cover.

By the way, Justin isn't a parent but he spends lots of time thinking about marriage.
