That'll get us out of the recession.
More babies = more baby supplies + school = more jons = more money

@Richard Very well said

It's what happened after WWII. Wives were very excited...if you know what I mean

@Katffro It's what happened after WWII. Wives were very excited...if you know what I mean

In our civics class, our teacher(about 24years old) said this(the WWII thing) wrong and the whole class including her started to laugh which made us laugh harder becuase she was laughing and kind embarassed about how it came out, she said something like "They didn't just get bored"

I still don't get how it'll be a bigger recession. More schools. More teachers. More builders. More companies making clothes/food/furniture/etc.
Maybe, in over 20 years, there will be a recession. But after WWII, there weren't any immediate problems.

Did it every occur to you guys that although there will be more jobs and we won't have to worry about a recession, there will be a lot more people. And based off of Darwin's theory, it is estimated that the world can only support 4 billion people and we are already at 6 billion...

@Ozzi that will mean less money

Not necessarily true. When people buy the products, the company hires people to make the products, and those people have money, so those people buy other things and the people they buy from will have better business, so they can hire more people and get more supplies from other companies, so those companies need more people....

Yeah, everything got better. Until now, when all those people from the baby boom start to retire.

@Jess_Doherty Yeah, everything got better. Until now, when all those people from the baby boom start to retire.

It wouldn't be a big deal if our economy was in decent shape.

This might just be me, but I think unemployment and welfare should be lowered or completely eliminated, so we can actually afford the baby boomers' retirements. They actually worked.

That doesn't make any sense! If there's no unemployment/welfare, then what are all the people without jobs meant to do, just die or something? They can't get a job, because everyone's being fired because of the recession, and there is no jobs! How did this turn into a debate about the economy, anyway...?

They're not even trying to get jobs though. And if we can't get rid of unemployment or welfare, they could at least lower how much money they're getting. It should be the bare minimum. The government isn't supposed to support everyone.
Taxpayers aren't supposed to pay for people who can't or won't get jobs.

I get what you're saying, and I bet you're right. It sounds wrong, but once all of the baby boomers die, the economy will be going strong again, at least for a while. Less money for social security, AND more jobs. And less money to unemployment.

Not to mention, you're right about the new babies helping the economies... Once the demand for baby products goes up, more money will go to the companies who make them, and they can hire more people, so the job crisis will slowly decrease. That would fan out to the other companies involved in the production of those products,. and everyone would get the jobs they need.

I just don't agree with getting rid of unemployment... Those people can't help that there is nowhere to work. I'm sure it's not that they 'won't' work... More like they just can't.

Overpopulation won't really be a problem for long, because of the slowly dying generation of baby boomers from the 40's.

I'm on your side, Katffro :)

@Lizzy I get what you're saying, and I bet you're right. It sounds wrong, but once all of the baby boomers die, the...

I agree with what you're saying, but where I grew up EVERYONE was on welfare, even though there were tons of job opportunities in my town. Little kids would tell teachers when asked that when they turn 18 they'll start "getting their cheques" and that is their future plan. It's a cycle and something needs to change. Welfare and social security does need to exist, but something MUST be done about the state it's in right now.

@Katffro No. The kids can't even get jobs until 16 years later, and remember the Baby Boom after WWII? Everything got a lot...

Your forgetting that after WW2 contraception was still looked down upon to an extent, meaning that more babies would have been born. But they would help the economy, just not for another 20 years. A greater demand would be placed on childcare services and baby associated factories meaning that prices would increase to lessen the competition for the goods and services.

But yeah the babies would help the world economically :)

Even if they did, the generations before then need to be prepared for this. Unlike WW2, 2012 may never happen to be the "end of days" scenario. If we cannot provide input for the younger generation (me= 19), how are we suppose to provide for a whole new generation?. What degree of preparation is already in place? I never even seen a recognition of this until now.

pregnancy lasts 280 days or 40 weeks to be exact.
assuming copulation happens on 20/12/2012 which is the 14th day of a menstrual cycle (when ovulation occurs, highest chance of fertilization), and 1st day of menstrual bleeding occurs on 6/12/2012. To calculate expected date of delivery (EDD) for a baby, add 9 months and 7 days to the LMP (1st day of last menstrual period). so in this case, EDD is suppose to be 13/9/2013.

anyway, nice to see this post :)

this is a really great post but let other great posts be post of the day. it has seriously been post of the day like 3 times

@No, this is the second time.

are you sure? i thought it was 3. well, i said like 3 times because i wasn't sure. my point is the same, though.

Things were better after WWII because of the booming military industrial complex, the GI Bill, and the fact that we were the world's biggest creditor, the baby boomers had little to do with that. Not to mention we were the only industrialized nation with it's infrastructure still intact after the war, making us automatically the world's military and economic superpower.

As for a coming baby boom's impact on the economy, in a country in the fourth stage of the demographic transition, such as the US, children become an economic burden as opposed to someplace, say Sierra Leone or wherever, in the first, second, or maybe early third stages where children are an economic benefit. The upper class won't be affected very much at all, the middle class will feel a slight impact, but it's the working class which will be hit the hardest, simply worsening the socio-economic disparity amongst the American people and causing more severe issues regarding credit, unemployment, the housing market,...

(Cont'd) - crime, education, etc. Not to mention the number of people who will pay hookers for sex December 20th or 21st, which will lead to terrible problems for them on top of what we already have. STD's will go crazy, worsening the health crisis. And so many women will be seeking abortions that, unless the issue is "resolved" by then it will cause majorly huge political and social divisions. And I'm gonna stop now because I'm making myself depressed about the years to come.

Actuallyy, it's ten months. 40 weeks. :)

@jNycoleu Actuallyy, it's ten months. 40 weeks. :)

Nine months is actually about 39 weeks, not 36.If we pretend that each month is 4 weeks by default (28 days) then the number of extra days (for the first 9 months on a non-leap-year) is 3 + 0 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 3 + 2 = 21 extra days = 3 extra weeks, and 36 + 3 = 39 weeks in total. Of course, it's slightly different depending on which months it is, but it's still pretty close. So 40 weeks is still closer to 9 months than 10 months.
