Choosing your parents

Posted By Russ Roberts On January 15, 2007 @ 1:55 pm In Family | Comments Disabled

Walter Oi [1] once told me that the two most important choices you make in life are your wife and your parents. By the latter "choice" he meant that your parents have a big impact on who you turn out to be. One of the important things included in that influence is where you are born and grow up. I am so fortunate to be born and raised in the United States [2]. (HT: Donald Luskin [3]) I think most immigrants to the US understand that—the overwhelming reason they come to the United States is for their children.
