The Finale? (Full Paper Attached)

There is not a single parent in the United States of America that doesn’t have some sort of opinion on Child Support and Child Support Laws.  Non-custodial or paying parents are in general against it.  And not against paying for the child/children but against donating their hard earned money to the custodial/receiving parent.  Most child …

How do you write Child support laws that are equal for all parties involved?

---Originally published by Denae Mongeon at ECON 260 Comp Econ Systems – Spring 2017 – Denae Mongeon

How did we get to the point that all child support laws obviously benefit one parent over the other financially?  How can we fairly differentiate between what money the custodial parent is using on the child versus on themselves? Page 47 in The law and Economics of Child Support by William S. Comanor quotes a …

The economic question of education

---Originally published by Denae Mongeon at ECON 260 Comp Econ Systems – Spring 2017 – Denae Mongeon

“Students, meanwhile, are not buying education any more than the government is. They are buying degrees, whose main purpose is to signal to employers that an individual went to a—preferably highly selective—university.” “Evaluators relied so intensely on ‘school’ as a criterion of evaluation not because they believed that the content of elite curricula better prepared …

Economic Inequality, for it or not?

---Originally published by Denae Mongeon at ECON 260 Comp Econ Systems – Spring 2017 – Denae Mongeon

A radical change as is suggested by Atkinson has the potential to drastically change the course of the current economic situation of inequality; however, the fallout of such a change could create further inequality in the United States.  The reason I say this is that our current diverse economic systems (since as in the United …

Testing Catagories

Just testing that I can categorize ECON260 Blogs.

First, allow me to help…

First, allow me to help you pronounce my name, it’s like Renee (or ShaNay Nay) but with a D and my last name is like dungeon with an M. Also, I am female (at work I am commonly referred to as Sir with people who I only communicate with in email, which is A LOT). I do have a full time career that is very demanding, I get called into work on weekends unexpectedly (due to emergencies that are terrible), I work 1 weekend a month, and I have to travel randomly to random places for random reasons and for random timeframes. I love my career and have for 16 years, though I am finally working on my Associates Degree in Political Science.

My main interest (which directly relates to this class) is also my next career adventure, Child Support Laws and Child Custody Laws. And to answer the next most obvious question you may be asking, yes I am a single mother who did decline my Friend of the Court rights because I think the current laws for Child Support are not followed and discriminatory towards fathers, which is why I am most interested in this subject. I haven’t really thought about different countries economic systems, but I am definitely looking forward to being able to explore how the rest of the world approaches such a personal and sensitive subject as Child Support.
