Thanks for the link!
Joshua:I'm utterly convinced that the debt crises in Europe is greatly attributable to declining birth rates. The neo Marxists got it wrong: the fiscal crisis of the west back in the 70s was due to the crisis of the mass production economy but do to the shrinking population brought on by the welfare state.Perhaps ifg the welfare state were reduce, people might be inclined to have more kids. Just for protection in old age but because the kids also represent the best economic stimulus.xavier
