It looks like the federal government is getting a big fat F. I think it breaks

Could be, too, your finances aren't right because the whole country, and
most of the world, have not allowed enough babies to be born, for decades. How
does this impact my or your or anyone's finances? Because, as Adam Smith
(Wealth of Nations, 1776) wrote, (to paraphrase), economies where the population
is growing, especially by natural increase (births) are more likely to generate
wealth. Why? Because the demand caused by so many more people with their needs
makes markets possible. There are other ingredients needed, to be sure, but
growing demand made possible by a growing population is a necessity for an
economy to thrive. You can have plenty of monetary capital. But, in an economy,
human capital is far more important than monetary capital.Nothing
makes an economy work well as many traditional families, with father and mother
and young children increasing year by year. When people fail to have children,
which they have long done in many parts of the world (US, Canada, Europe, Japan,
South Korea, China, Singapore, Russia, etc, we are all in trouble financially.
