Sheldon Danziger quoted in Wall Street Journal article, “More Adults ‘Fail to Launch,’ Making Parenthood Too Pricey?”

Monday, May 3, 2010

Sheldon Danziger spoke to the Wall Street Journal about changes in social norms that make it more acceptable for children to live with, and be supported by, their parents into adulthood. Danziger’s research on this topic was published in the Spring 2010 issue of The Future of Children Journal. The study, titled “Labor Market Outcomes and the Transition to Adulthood,” explores the relationship between changes in the labor market and the difficulty young adults face achieving financial independence and self-reliance.
