In Italy, for example, a small Southern Italian town has instituted a “baby bonus:”
“…in 2003 Falivena let it be known he would pay 10,000 euros (about $15,000) for every woman — local or immigrant, married or single — who would give birth to and rear a child in the village. The “baby bonus,” as he calls it, is structured to root new citizens in the town: a mother gets 1,500 euros when her baby is born, then a 1,500-euro payment on each of the child’s first four birthdays and a final 2,500 euros the day the child enrolls in first grade.”
How would you feel if a particular government paid you to make babies? Would you oblige or be insulted (come on now, be a good patriot!).
