Debt Day and Declining Population—Effects on the National Welfare


Voice of the Nation

Family Values Blog Talk Radio

This Thursday Live at 3pm PST

On Thursday: As “Debt Day” looms this week and the national government runs out of money, financial issues are at the forefront of many minds.  Voice Of The Nation will be discussing “Demographic Winter” and the very real effects of low birth rates on world populations and economies.  In this time of economic downturn, what role does the birth rate play?  Also, what’s going on with the marriage fight?  We’ll be giving you updates on same-sex marriage as it is playing out in Maine and elsewhere.

Guest  Marcia Barlow will be joining us this week to talk about population changes and consequences, the points that even our opposition will concede:

  • Has our side correctly identified the problems brought to light by “Demographic Winter?
  • Is there a way to reverse fertility decline in Europe?  What does the future look like?
  • Are population control programs positively correlated with economic development?
  • Can immigration solve the “aging problem”?
Marcia Barlow is the director of public policy for United Families International and is currently a graduate student at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government working on a Masters in Public Administration.

Open Chat and Call lines: We’ll be taking your questions via online chat during the show and if you want to ask your own questions, feel free to call in!  347- 215-6801.
