  1. The “who has time for kids” with two careers, two cars, a crushing back loaded home mortgage and stress induced heart attack solution to world population control.


  2. In poor countries kids are your old age pension. If you have enough you will likley be able to live with one in your old age. But its not obvious that you have to go all the way to the US see Irans birth rate. The solution is education for women once they have seen the world they don’t want to be stuck with kids.
