Part Three of The Current
Selfish Reasons to Have More Kids - Bryan Caplan
We started this segment with some thoughts from parents at a drop-in centre in Toronto and like many parents, they have a hard time imagining themselves with a big family ... three, four or even more kids. But Bryan Caplan thinks they should reconsider and he thinks people without kids should get cracking.
Bryan Caplan is a professor of economics at George Mason University and the author of Selfish Reasons to Have More Kids: Why Being a Great Parent is Less Work and More Fun Than You Think. In it, he makes a case for bucking the prevailing demographic trend of declining birth rates in developed countries and makes a spirited argument in favour of fertility. Bryan Caplan joined us as part of our project Shift.
