China had a one-child policy.
It ended last week.
The Boston Globe gives space to someone arguing the policy was a good thing - resources being limited and such.
I wonder if this person extends this thought to the federal government and its spending?
Even if having only one child does no great harm directly to parents, many will object that it would severely harm us as a society. Some may argue that a declining population will cause the economy to collapse. (China’s change stems in part from its concern over how to maintain an aging population with a diminishing workforce.)
China tried a policy and, looking at the numbers, sees trouble ahead.
The Tea Party sees trouble ahead with our spending. Will people who consider limiting childbearing limit their desire for federal money?
