Jennifer Roback Morse served as a Research Fellow for Stanford University’s Hoover Institution from 1997-2005. She received her Ph.D. in economics from the University of Rochester in 1980. She taught economics at Yale University and George Mason University for 15 years. She writes about the family and the free society. Her first book, Love and Economics: Why the Laissez-Faire Family Doesn’t Work, shows why the family is the necessary building block for a free society and why so many modern attempted substitutes for the family do not work. Her second book, Smart Sex: Finding Life-Long Love in a Hook-Up World, exposes the sexual revolution’s fraudulent promise of freedom and points the way to the most thrilling adventure of all—life-long love.
Jennifer is currently a Research Fellow at the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty. She lives in Vista, CA, where she pursues her primary vocation as wife and mother, combined with an avocation of writing and lecturing.
She and her husband are the parents of an adopted child, a birth child, and two foster children.
