The Star Tribune reported several days ago that due to the strengthening of the economy the birth rate in the US was up for the first time since the early 90's. So if married women aren't having children, this can only mean that the increase in birth rate is due to unmarried women which are typically at the low end of the economic ladder. Not very good news for the future.

Recent research named $240,000 as the cost to raise a child to adulthood. People can't afford that any more.

I think the cost factor is vastly overplayed by people with a political agenda. The fact is that a lot of people don't feel they need to spit out yet another kid into this world to find some sort of self-worth. My wife and I have two wonderful kids, but that doesn't mean everyone else has to follow the same template.
