Today’s read is from columnist Jackie Gingrich Cushman who contends America needs to encourage family formation and worthwhile work.
For our population to remain steady, we have to have an average of 2.1 births per woman of childbearing age. Last year, the birth rate, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was 1.73 children per woman. If this continues, our population will decline. Over the long term, this will most likely lead to an economic decline. This means less creation and more decline and destruction.
This is not what we want.
