Wall Street Journal
Family friendly policies the answer to demographic woes?
This week I recommend you to an interesting interview conducted by John Rosen on the Wall Street Journal website with the author of a new book called “What to expect when no one’s expecting”.

We only have to look like countries like Greece to see that we can’t afford entitlements, for example, without a young working population paying taxes.
