Investing in Children Makes No Sense

Pointless?

Pointless?

After reading “Selfish Reasons To Have Kids”, a book by American economist Bryan Caplan, the Polish chief economist at Warsaw Economic Studies Maciej Bitner decided that the influence of parents on their children is close to zero when it comes to education, health and future income. Furthermore, Bitner says that people should have more children. Experiments conducted on twins separated in childhood because of adoption to different families proved that success (or lack thereof) is inscribed in our genes. On the other hand, families ready for adoption must meet strict requirements. So in other words, people who have a prosperous family and do not have problems with money and accommodation are those who do not have to worry about their children’s future when it comes to health and education. Which is not and was never a surprise.
