The University of Michigan chapter of Young Americans for Liberty was proud to bring alumnus and famous economist Steven Horwitz to speak on “Capitalism and the Family.” In this lecture, Steven Horwitz provided a history of the family as a social institution and argued that capitalism/classical liberalism (and the wealth that it created) were fundamental in transforming the family from an economic institution (which was oppressive towards women and kids) to the predominantly emotion/affection-based institution we have today. The talk focused on how markets liberated women and changed childhood for the better. It also includes brief discussions of divorce and same-sex marriage.
