Ekonomi besegrar religiösa dogmer

Gary Becker skriver, apropå det utbredda användandet av preventivmedel bland katoliker:

It is hard not to conclude from this evidence that economics has trumped religion in Catholic fertility decisions, and in other Catholic decisions regarding marriage and divorce. Developing and developed economies provide strong economic incentives to reduce the demand for children because the education, potential earnings, and labor force participation of married women has greatly increased in these economies, and the trade off between the quantity and “quality” of children has shifted away from quantity and toward quality. That is, since modern economies mainly reward persons who have much education and other human capital, parents tend to invest a lot in each of a fewer number of children.

Leve ekonomismen!

  1. Ursäkta en petimeter, men har verkligen KK någon dogm om preventivmedel? Allt som Påven säger betraktas ju inte som dogmer, iaf inte av KK.

    Wikipedia: dogm

    Nu undrar jag, i min tur, varför Du länkar till en site, som entydigt påstår att alla påvliga uttalanden ex cathedra, uppfattas av den katolska kyrkan som ofelbara och därmed som dogmer.

    Men han kanske aldrig har sagt något om preventivmedel
    ex cathedra…?

    Vilket ju å andra sidan skulle göra hela debatten meningslös…
