Middle-class French mothers will be paid to start le baby boom - The Telegraph (UK)

It is almost laughable reading that the French 'believe' they have a 1.9 birth rate. They continue to fool themselves that they have enough of a birth rate to continue their dangerous social experiment of creeping towards a complete welfare state. Even a 1.9 birth rate is below the 'replacement' rate of 2.1 needed to keep the 'same' population level. With an overtaxed population and a growing retirement community, their generous welfare state is taking France to a demographic nightmare where in 20-30 years time there will be a revolution of the elderly demanding more taxes to fund their retirement benefits or the young (whatever's left of them) demanding lower taxes. Ce la vi!
