  • Well, there's that idea, or we could accept changing economic conditions and limitations on land, and look to more sustainable economic models...
  • Part of the reason that our economy (and population) is still expanding is because in the US, immigration is adding more residents to counteract the declining birthrate.

    Done in one.

    I find that most of the people fearmongering about the declining birth rate are primarily concerned about the declining white birth rate.

    Right. And if you look at every single developed country in the world, the birth rate is declining EVERYWHERE, so the US is not exactly all that special in this regard.

  • With automation and outsourcing, we're not going to have enough jobs for the population we're naturally going to have, never mind for the population we'd have with 2.3+ fertility rate plus immigration.

    You can't run a social system based on the prospect of limitless growth. Blame the ones without foresight who engineered it, not the ones not breeding until their genitalia explode.
  • I'm convinced I'll have one child. At least, I keep telling myself that I want to have one child. But, I have NOOOOOO idea when this will happen. I'm 32 and married BUT still searching for that ellusive entry level job that will kickstart my career. Then I will need maternity leave. Then daycare. And hope my parents move closer to the West coast.
  • I would be happy to knock up every woman possible.

    Paying child support? Not so much.

    Right, and God could just create an alternate earth orbiting this one that is full of unicorns and puppies where we all could go and be so so happy. A much more reasonable idea is simply to breed our way out of this problem because after all the economy is not a zero sum game and there are infinite resources that only become more plentiful as we grow in numbers.
  • Or just relax immigration as needed. Not that hard of a problem to solve.

    That's the actual solution. There are plenty of young people on the damn planet. Just get them to move here.

    As a young person struggling to find a job here already, I object.
  • Hey.

    Have you seen the Politics tab?

    There are a lot of people who should not be reproducing. We are proof.

    NOOOOOO! They might vote for *gasp* DEMOCRATS!!!!!111!
  • Yeah, but why do people in third world countries insist on having more babies?

    /makes no sense
  • You need to raise 3 kids. The first one to learn how to do it, the second to get it right and the third to get it the way you wanted in the first place.

  • The unstated issue is that brown people are breeding. AND they worship the wrong deities.
  • To paraphrase Voltaire, the comfort of the rich requires a vast population of poor.

    There is absolutely no danger we'll run out of workers to wipe the butts of nursing-home patients, though we might well run out of workers poor and desperate enough to do this in exchange for poverty wages.
  • I have 4 kids, so I'm gett a kick- OW!

    Damn kids. GROUNDED!

    Borrow money from your parents and buy Walmart stock. Your objection will vanish.
