Fewer Children for Americans?

kids.jpg According to an article (The No-Baby Boom) by Details Magazine on Yahoo!, America is experiencing a significant decrease in the number of children being born. Generally seen as being attributable to the poor economy, children now tend to be seen as an economic liability rather than the free labor they once were when our economy was more dependent on farms. So, what is going to happen to our society if we continue to experience decline in reproduction? Is it possible that we will begin to experience significant population reduction?

Interestingly, this does not appear to be only an American trend. Globally, birth rates dropped nearly in 1/2 between 1978 and 2008. One mayor in Italy has resorted to bribery by offering $15,000 for each child that is born. In Germany, they are experiencing an annual population loss of 100,000. Approximately 18% of adult men in New Zealand have volunteered for vasectomies.
