"Before the introduction of the dividend in 1982, there was no
difference in fertility rates in Alaska versus “Synthetic Alaska”; the
Synthetic Alaska was specifically constructed so that this would be
the case. But in the years after the dividend’s introduction, from
1983 to 1988, Alaska’s fertility rate rises markedly higher. Alaskans
were having 11.3 more babies per 1,000 women than Synthetic Alaskans.
The authors find no increase in teenage mothers having kids, but
fertility rose for basically everyone from age 20 to 44, compared to
the control group."


many systems suggest money for children incentivises the 'poor'...
thus other systems only target 'adults'(eg over 21, over 25 etc)

What has any of this to do with UK Politics?

Or have you finally flipped?

you are a bit restricted to your local village pump

you live in a place that gives money to those who breed...
that is an incentive

whether you call it child allowance or a citizen's wage
(for children) is irrelevant...

if you are going to indulge in such social engineering, it
is useful to compare the effects across administrations
