Subsidies for Childbearing and Fertility Rates

Author

Listed:
  • Robert Dunn Jr

Abstract

Subsidies and tax incentives have become such an important policy tool in the United States and elsewhere that we often exaggerate their effectiveness. This author examines the effect of such policies on fertility rates. They may have some impact, he believes, but they by no means dominate family decisions about having children.
