Matthias Doepke investigates how economic forces and growing inequality shape how parents raise their children.

Parents everywhere want their children to be happy and do well. Yet how parents seek to achieve this ambition varies enormously. For instance, American and Chinese parents are increasingly authoritative and authoritarian, whereas Scandinavian parents tend to be more permissive. Why? Matthias Doepke investigates how economic forces and growing inequality shape how parents raise their children.

Matthias Doepke is Professor of Economics at Northwestern University. He lives in Evanston, Illinois.

Wouter Den Haan is Professor of Economics at LSE and Co-director of the Centre for Macroeconomics.

The Centre for Macroeconomics (CFM) @CFMUK is a research centre carrying out pioneering research on the global economic crisis.

The LSE Department of Economics @LSEEcon is one of the largest economics departments in the world.
