American Vision: The Great Conservative Hypocrisy

| December 28, 2017

Conservative Christians oppose liberals in general. We pretend we have the moral high ground. We oppose abortion, the homosexual lobby, etc. Yet Christians accept a host of socialist wealth-redistribution schemes. The most glaring example of this is education. Christians, almost to the person, accept and fight for the institution of public education funded by other people’s […]

Matt Walsh: Thank God for the Gender Wage Gap

| April 10, 2014

It’s Equal Pay Day, everyone! As per tradition, progressives mark the occasion by using fabricated numbers to drive a destructive narrative of division and faux-victimhood. In other words, Equal Pay Day is just like any other day, except with more hashtags.

Save Up To Marry or Marry To Save Up?

| January 22, 2014

Data suggests “married couples seem to build more wealth on average than singles or cohabiting couples. Why might it matter if marriage fades among working and middle class Americans? Even though marriages are not guaranteed to last, healthy marriage relationships do promote human flourishing. Marriage successfully integrates emotional intimacy, parental responsibility and economic cooperation into […]

Marriage and Economic Well Being: The Economy of the Family Rises or Falls with Marriage

| January 5, 2014

Patrick F. Fagan, Andrew J. Kidd and Henry Potrykus Executive Summary The economic well-being of the United States is strongly related to marriage, which is a choice about how we channel our sexuality. The implications of sexual choices are apparent when comparing family structures across basic economic measures such as employment, income, net worth, poverty, […]

Industrialization and Marriage

| April 17, 2013

From the Colson Center: I recently learned that the concept of the family room originated from guidelines that the government issued in the middle of the 20th century when specifying how homes could qualify for insurance. A new model of the home emerged which deliberately detached it from labor and functionality. Government planners urged architects […]

Why is Europe committing demographic suicide?

| April 13, 2013

Sobering: Demographers, economists and psychologists are scratching their heads over a phenomenon that breaks all their statistical models and paradigms of human behaviour. Why would people who are prosperous (and, despite the current situation, western Europe is) not want to do what human beings have always done and leave a posterity? How can they contemplate […]

More people waking up to the college illusion

| January 26, 2013

We’ve been saying for years that the brick-and-mortar model was outdated and would go the way of the dodo. We’ve been mocked and misquoted and told we’re trying to prevent women from getting an education, when that’s absolutely not the case. We’re just in favor of a real education that doesn’t involve a lifetime of […]

Fathers without jobs

| March 2, 2012

From Carolyn Moynihan at Mercatornet: As men sometimes complain, they have tended to be overlooked in the great exodus of women from the home into the workforce and other changes affecting women and motherhood during the past 50-60 years. However, higher rates of unemployment among men in a changing economy has recently drawn some attention […]

The Coming Demographic Catastrophe

| February 20, 2012

We picked up our local paper last Tuesday to read the lead story: that Kenya would begin a strong contraceptive push to bring down its population growth in the next 20 years. Key to the article was the easy-to-miss one-line admission that foreign aid to East Africa is now dependent on the EA community’s acceptance […]

The Family Presented as Antidote to Economic Crisis

| February 6, 2012

And now for something encouraging and motivating when it comes to reviving the biblical “household economy.” A rabbi who spoke of the family, an economist who spoke of morality, a priest who spoke of conjugal love. All this took place during the meeting “The Family as an Engine of Economic Growth: Values and Prospects,” which […]

Women Say ‘No!’ to Equality in Retirement

| November 3, 2011

From Israel National News: Egged on by feminists, Knesset’s Labor and Welfare Committee approves law that would keep women’s retirement age 5 years under men’s…. The leaders of Israel’s women’s groups adhere to militant “feminist” ideology which demands equality between men and women as regards respect, privilege and power. Equality is never demanded, however, with […]

Marriage, family and the business dividend

| October 7, 2011

From Mercatornet: Have you read the latest on the Greek bailout? Last I heard people who were lucky enough to have government jobs are on strike because they are about to lose them, thanks to austerity measures being forced on the country by the EU and the IMF. The sunny Mediterranean country is the eye […]

GINKs on the rise?

| September 30, 2011

From Shannon Buckley at Mercatornet: Those who would have us stop having children have obviously got through to the editor of The Guardian, Lisa Hymas, who has announced that she is going to be a ‘GINK’ – which is apparently a trendy new term which stands for ‘green inclinations, no kids’…. According to Hymas having no children is a family type that there […]

Be proactive about the future: Attend the Family Economics Conference!

| September 6, 2011

And now for something encouraging, heartening, and motivating: The economies of the world around us rise and fall, corporations come and go, but we are hopeful and excited about the future of the family economy. Families around America are beginning to see the vision for work and economics that existed for over 4,000 years – […]
