Wheatley Fellow Co-Writes About the Economic Benefit of Families

Dr. Jenet Erickson, Ph.D., Writes with Others About How Families Can Boost the Economy

Dr. Jenet Erickson, a faculty fellow at the Wheatley Institute, co-wrote an article for the Deseret News with Dr. Brad Wilcox and Dr. Patrick T. Brown about the "Utah family miracle" and the correlation between strong families and strong economies.

The article uses research done by another Wheatley Fellow, Dr. Joe Price, that indicates that "that one of the top predictors of economic performance across the states is the share of married parents."
