Tax-spend policies less important to economy than healthy families, study argues
June 24, 2011
A new study from the Family Research Council argues that the health of the family is the single most important factor in the American economy.
“The key investors in both physical and human capital throughout America’s history have been stable, married families,” the authors note. Yet government policies have consistently undermined family life. The resulting problem is summed up in the title of the study: “We cannot tax, spend, and borrow enough to substitute for marriage.”
