FREE eBOOK: Forget The Monthly Jobs Data, Family Decomposition Is An Economic Crisis

Since the 1950s, divorces and out-of-wedlock births in America have risen dramatically. This has significantly affected the economic well-being of the country’s most vulnerable populations. In “Home Economics: The Consequences of Changing Family Structure, Nick Schulz argues that serious consideration of the consequences of changing family structure is sorely missing from conversations about American economic policy and politics. Apprehending a complete picture of this country’s economic condition will be impossible if poverty, income inequality, wealth disparities, and unemployment alone are taken into consideration, claims Schulz.

This book will trace how family structure has transformed over the last half century, ruminate on the causes of those changes, consider what conclusions can be drawn about the economic consequences of the changes in family, and offer ideas for how to handle the issue in the years to come. “Home Economics” is a primer in the Values & Capitalism series intended for college students.

It would be an enormous successful for American traditionalism if we could duplicate the success we had during Memorial Day weekend, when “The Meaning of Memorial Day” eBook when viral and “Thank Yous” poured in from all over. I focused heavily on the psychological effects on what I termed “family decomposition” in my book “Our Virtuous Republic” – although we all know what the reference means. Republicanism, and indeed our entire system of government, was predicated on the real world observation of human nature. The “tightness” of relationships between family members are the most basic, thus naturally the strongest, societal relationships that instill the greatest of obligation toward and among citizens.

“Real world” observation, or otherwise known as common sense, is overwhelmingly supported by the empirical data, which Shultz so details in this work. Although American traditionalism has been attached with a backward stigma from the Progressive Era, it is really quite obvious that “progressivism is truly regressive.”
