Economic life for average Americans and their families has increasingly been characterized by stagnant incomes, rising income inequality, and uncertain job prospects for men. How much do changes in marriage and family stability affect this shifting economic landscape, the economic status of men, and the health of the American dream? A lot, argue Robert Lerman and W. Bradford Wilcox in their new AEI report, “For richer, for poorer: How family structures economic success in America.”
Join Lerman, Wilcox, and a group of distinguished scholars and commentators for the release of Lerman and Wilcox’s report, which examines the relationships among and policy implications of marriage, family structure, and economic success in America.
