In a new book, Harris economist Robert Michael breaks down the economics behind life's five most important choices.

Your choices matter—so why not use social science to make them?

That’s the idea behind a new book from Robert Michael, the founding dean of Harris Public Policy and the Eliakim Hastings Moore Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus. His new book is called The Five Life Decisions: How Economic Principles and 18 Million Millennials Can Guide Your Thinking.

But is there anything wrong with using data and economics to make choices about your love life, or whether to have children? Michael discusses on the latest episode of Radio Harris.
