Book Description

January 6, 2006 0742538559 978-0742538559
Though the world's population continues to grow, total fertility rates are dropping below replacement level in many parts of the world. The Baby Bust, a landmark book of essays by demographic, economic, and political science experts, examines the global 'birth dearth' and its causes, implications, and policy options. Focusing in large part on the United States, this book also includes data from Europe and Japan and makes important comparisons between the three regions. It concludes with suggestions for making America's future sound and prosperous, through the regularization and legalization of appropriate levels of immigration; enhancing governmental efforts to increase productivity; and finally, ending the present waste of so many underutilized members of the workforce, particularly minorities and the poor.

Editorial Reviews

Review

The book...provides a good and very accessible account of the trends in fertility in economically advanced countries...the book...[is] a valuable addition to reading lists in courses in demography and sociology, particularly in the light of its accessibility and its broad coverage... (John Ermisch, University of Essex Population Studies)

About the Author

Fred R. Harris is professor of political science at the University of New Mexico.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There is a demographic mess coming to the world and it has already started. These are a series of articles discussing how the low birth rates are affected and will further affect societies in the various parts of the world. What a huge change in birthrates -- I have been studying the history of my family --- my maternal grandmother's parents had 13 children --- my other 3 great grandparent families had 7 or more. My wife and I without really thinking about it only had 2.
