- What will be the macro-level economic impacts in shifting existing family laws/policies, social services, education, discrimination laws, and so on, to be inclusive of non-monogamy?
- In bringing non-monogamy forward as an acceptable practice to society, it makes sense that the number of practicing non-monogamists would increase. How broad of a cultural shift would this be, what differing consumption/savings patterns do non-monogamists have compared to monogamists, and what would be the net impact on GDP?
- Though I don't like the Infidelity & GDP paper, it did bring to mind one question that has been stewing in the back of my mind for awhile: Is there a way to measure the impact of transitory partners in poly families? This isn't like monogamous transitions, which consists of the serial monogamy 'break-up-and-re-marry', since it's entirely possible for a partner to transition out of a relationship and the relationship is still standing, AND it's possible for a partner to transition in a relationship. What's an economic perspective, both macro and micro, on these transitions?
Just a few notes for future research. I'm sure I'll dig into this at another time.
