The Price of Entitlements


The Price of Entitlements – Michael Barone – National Review Online.

“The longer-term price any society pays for a public old-age-pension system is lower birth rates. Farmers had large families in order to provide additional labor during their working years and sources of income for their dotage. So did factory workers a century ago.”

Unintended consequence.
