Parents everywhere want their children to be happy and do well. Yet how parents seek to achieve this ambition varies enormously. The book "Love, money & parenting. How Economics Explains the Way We Raise Our Kids", gives an international and historical look at how parenting choices change in the face of economic inequality.

The book investigates how economic forces and growing inequality shape how parents raise their children. From medieval times to the present, and from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden to China and Japan, Matthias Doepke and Fabrizio Zilibotti look at how economic incentives and constraints—such as money, knowledge, and time—influence parenting practices and what is considered good parenting in different countries.
