Last quote by David Canning

Money is not the metric of human welfare. I've seen a paper written by economists who argue we should have no children, because if you have children, the GDP per capita in your household is lower. That is true, but we like children even though we don't buy and sell them. There are things in life worth doing, even if we don't buy and sell them. That is a truth economists have to realise.feedback
