La caida de la tasa de natalidad en EEUU no es por un fracaso moral, sino por cuestiones económicas

The decline in the US birth rate is not about moral failure, it’s about economics

Last month, the Brookings Institution updated a June survey on American fertility, concluding that 2021 would see a sharp drop in US births.
