From the Inside Flap
The political right calls for a return to traditional marriage; the left proposes more social programs to help less advantaged families. In
Generation Unbound, Isabel V. Sawhill offers a provocative third approach: turning “drifters” into “planners” and thereby ensuring that more
children are born into families with the means and motivation to care for them―and saving billions of dollars in social costs.
How do we make this shift? Drawing on behavioral economics, Sawhill offers recommendations for preventing unplanned pregnancy among young adults―for example, by offering greater access to long-acting reversible contraception (such as IUDs) to help
stem the tide of children born to parents who are unprepared for the financial and social responsibilities of raising a child.
