Wall Street Journal


Family friendly policies the answer to demographic woes?
Shannon Roberts | Feb 11 2013 | comment  

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”.  You can find it here.  The author, Jonathan Last, succinctly summarises many of the challenges facing the world as a result of low birth rates.  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.
