Abby Davisson and Myra Strober (Allison Busch)

Many of life’s very biggest decisions – should I quit my job? Should we move in together? Is it time to get pregnant? Divorce? Retire? – are at the crossroads of money and love.  We don’t learn how to navigate either in school.  Unless you happened to take labor economist Myra Strober’s class on work and family at Stanford. Now she and one of her former students, Abby Davisson,  have written a book about how to approach life’s biggest quandaries. We talk with Strober and Davisson about “Money and Love: An Intelligent Roadmap for Life’s Biggest Decisions”.
