Deadbeat dads are destroying the economy

It appears that if we could find a way to improve values in our nation that the economy would improve, and our jail cells and prisons would empty out.  Ann Coulter provides the following information:
  • Controlling for socioeconomic status, race and place of residence, the strongest predictor of whether a person will end up in prison is that he was raised by a single mother.

  • At least 70 percent of juvenile murderers, pregnant teenagers, high school dropouts, teen suicides, runaways and juvenile delinquents were raised by single mothers.
  • A study back in 1990 by the Progressive Policy Institute showed that, absent single motherhood, there would be no difference in black and white crime rates
It's interesting anyway.  The best remedy for Detroit may be simplty to find some way to stop teen pregnancy, and to stop people who aren't married from having sex.  Yet so many people talk no-a-days how it's more important to give out free contraceptives, as opposed to inculcating values and abstinence.    It is what it is.  Another issue here is deadbeat dads and sperm donors.
