Oh Lawd save us from the stupidity of these New York Post writers. With an article title:
by Michael Barone the uber Doofus imbecile.
You might expect the article to cite evidence then that birth rates are now increasing. NOPE! Lowest since the 1970s. Lowest ever more likely. So why the title? Oh its dumb ass speculation without a SHRED of evidence.
Worse, the article goes on to state this very very shocking statement about Rapefugees from Africa:
immigrants from African countries like Nigeria and Ghana. Their capacity for expanding the economy rather than competing for low-skill jobs may point to unexpected growth.
Dumb violent raping low IQ savages DO NOT CONTRIBUTE TO THE ECONOMY. NO! NO NO NO NO NO! They are a COST for all the crime, jail time, welfare handouts, not to mention the end of productive lives of the people they kill. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO! SHUT THE F-L UP BARONE YOU DUMB ASS.
It doesn’t end. NO there is not a LoWER NUMBER OF UNSKILLED HISPANICS. They have been growing like weeds. 30 million illegals here and thats just the illegal alien invaders! He says there will then be more unskilled jobs for Americans. HARDLY!
Shut up Barone, your stupidity is endless.
Is a similar values shift happening now? Maybe so, suggest George Mason University associate professor Philip Auerswald and Palo Alto hedge-fund manager Joon Yun in an article in The New York Times. They point out that the American fertility rate — the number of children per woman age 15 to 44 — has hit a post-1970s low.
Birth rates typically drop during recessions and rise a bit during booms. They did drop notably from 2007 to 2009. But the latest data don’t show a rebound, despite significant growth and record-low unemployment.
The trend varies among demographic groups. Native-born Hispanics and blacks used to have birth rates above the replacement rate (2.1 births per woman). Now they’re below replacement, almost as low that of as native-born whites and Asians, which are down only a bit. The immigrant birth rate remains above replacement level among blacks, but only barely above among Hispanics, and below among whites and Asians.
One possible consequence: Those often-gleeful predictions that whites will soon be a minority will not be realized so soon, or maybe ever. Nor is it clear, as sociologist Richard Alba has suggested, whether often-intermarrying Hispanics and Asians will see themselves as aggrieved minorities.
Also, the sharp drop in the Hispanic birth rate combined with the sharp drop of Hispanic (especially Mexican) immigration post-2007 means a lower proportion of low-skill immigrants competing for jobs with low-skill Americans. Asian immigrants may outnumber Hispanics and arrive with significantly higher skill levels. So may immigrants from African countries like Nigeria and Ghana. Their capacity for expanding the economy rather than competing for low-skill jobs may point to unexpected growth.
