The Effect of Children on Happiness: The Latest from the Research Frontier, Bryan Caplan | EconLog | Library of Economics and Liberty
The Effect of Children on Happiness: The Latest from the Research Frontier, Bryan Caplan EconLog Library of Economics and Liberty: "Hasty readers of happiness research often conclude that kids are a disaster for happiness. If you actually look at the size as well as the sign of standard estimates, however, the right conclusion is that kids ever-so-slightly reduce happiness. I then go on to point out that a great deal of parental unhappiness is unnecessary, so it is reasonable to think that kids combined with scientifically literate parenting would increase happiness."
