    another alternative, is that statistic is that for the first time in history women can live above the poverty line without having to tie up to the male of the species

    I could probably handle that kind of arrangement.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    It could be that intellegent women are not so keen on unintellegent men (which isn't a reciprocaded value). Or that intellegent women only want men for sex and therfore don't make perminant partnerships. Or that unintellegent men feel they can't chase intellegent women, or they find them unattractive. Or that there are more intellegent women than men to go around....
    Why would intelligent women only want men for sex?

    I don't know how things are now, but when I was in college I was surprised to learn that farm kids in the US work the farm alongside their adult family members, including driving grain trucks and heavy equipment while still in elementary school.

    The incentive may not be strictly economic because it is surely less expensive to hire hands than to raise children in the US, but I think it is premature to rule out extra hands as an incentive for having children on a global scale.
    ‚ÄúThere are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old‚Äôs life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.‚ÄĚ

    I'm sure there will be some cross over between cost to feed and rear kids and income they can generate while working for you, but I'm not convinced it's a cause to get pregnant...
