Product Details


I’m sure parents will recognize many of the parenting dilemmas Joshua Gans has come across. Each of these vignettes is amusing, often touching, and always told in a very tender way. Yet the economist in Joshua can re-frame these stories to find the underlying economics, and perhaps some useful parenting insights as well.—Justin Wolfers, Freaknomics Blog, The New York Times

Parentonomics brings a thought-provoking and sometimes laugh-out-loud perspective to the challenges faced by every mother and father.

Sherrill Nixon, Sydney Morning Herald

Parentonomics challenges conventional parenting by applying economic theories to the messy reality of raising kids.

Susie O’Brien, Victoria Herald Sun
