    I have kids and I want grandkids (one and counting).

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: Do you want children?

    There has been a trend going back to the 60s & 70s for couples to have fewer and fewer children, and I think in part it has to do with economics.

    The recent 2% drop may be due to the recession, but I think people want to be able to provide a better life for children than they had.

    There is also some question about a womans education affecting the number of children, that postulates are more educated women less likely to have a lot of children or does having more children cause a woman to have less education?

    It's back to a chicken & egg type question.

    I come from a very large family with 4 brothers and 1 sister, and I have three children.

    My children have had 1, 2, and 3 children, all are very educated. Two with Bachelors degrees one with a PHD and the one with the PHD is the one with 3 kids.

    I know this, Muslims are having a lot more kids than the rest of the Worlds Population, and here illegals are having more than any other group.

    In Parkland Memorial Hospital Dallas, the second busiest maternity ward in the United States, 70% of the women giving birth were illegal aliens.

    By the way, how in the world could that happen? Aren't these people asked for ID when they go to hospital or apply for a job? Why is uncle Sam closing his eyes to that breaking of the law?

    Nah, I have two already. That is enough for me.

    Simple. The kid is about to become a citizen. If you kick out the parents and the kid after the birth you just kicked out a citizen. Kind of a whole catch twenty two with that bit of nonsense.

    Yes, I do want children. My wife and I are trying to have our first.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Certain muslim countries birth rates are at the same level as that of most of Europe. Iran, north africa (minus Egypt) a couple of central asian countries birth rates are at or below replacement levels. Nowhere as low as Japan or Italy though

    Another uninformed post. Uncle Sam isn't closing his eyes and you don't know what the law is.

    Re: Do you want children?

    We just found out, a week ago, that we are going to have our first grand child. Also, probably last. I didn't realize how happy I've been since the news.
