FAST FIVE: Killing The Future: COVID Madness Will Lead To Half A Million Fewer US Births In 2021
The findings by the Brookings Institute were published last week in the Wall Street Journal, which noted that there will be “between 300,000 to 500,000 fewer births in the US next year, compared with a drop of 44,172 last year.” The numbers equate to a 13% drop from the 3.8 million babies born in 2019.
The “analysis, partly based on what happened following the 2007-2009 recession, is that weaker job prospects equate to fewer births,” the report further notes.
All of this results in increased pessimism and a downward spiral that is difficult to break.
Indeed, by 2034 Americans over age 65 are expected to outnumber those under 18 for the first time in the history of the nation.
Unless it is stopped now, the COVID madness, the lockdowns, the panic, the social engineering will not only causing irrevocable damage to our collective psyche, societal morale, and cultural richness, it will also destroy future prosperity and literally deny life to millions along the way.
