The Place of Economics in a Classical Education

Whatever approach is best for your students at your school, know that you are serving not just the mind but the whole person.

Economics began with the late scholastics and ought to continue today as part of a full classical curriculum.

The rising median age at first marriage and first birth, however, largely arise from a mix of technological progress and preference for career, which aren’t things policies can reverse. Better solutions come from civil society, where entrepreneurs work to find solutions to the everyday problems modern parents face and religious communities help young adults order their priorities.
