188. Perhaps the most equable solution is tax credits for three children.
Many are rightly concerned about over population. However, the problem isn't with the industrialized countries but in the so-called Third World countries. Some industrialized countries have such low birth rate that their is real concern about their future.

I would like to note that the military has for a number of years limited allotments for the first three children. It certainly was an effective incentive for families to limit the number of children that they choose to have. I would think that that would be a reasonable approach that could be applied nationally.

There has been a great deal of discussion about how the wealthy 1% have control of the something like 75% of the total wealth. There is a simple solution to the plight of the working class. When they decide to get off off the ass and unionize they can start getting a fair share of what they produce. When 36% of the working class were unionized they enjoyed the highest standard of living that only required one person to support a family. When the working class organize they will be in a position where they can demand universal health care, stop the hemorrhaging of jobs to out-sourcing, a fair division of the profits and reasonable compensation for executives.
