Pop. Growth[edit]

How does this curb population growth? I mean, it's providing even more of an incentive to have or keep female children, and a higher female/male ratio is worse for a population explosion? Perhaps condoms would be a cheaper solution... -- Phyzome is Tim McCormack 12:48, 23 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Don't let the Church hear you say that, heathen. --Wolfrider 14:53, 23 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]
They only give free edu to single child families, and a discount to 2 girl families. Bawolff 20:17, 23 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]
As Bawolff comments, the incentives are only available to those with no boys, and one or two girls. As you say, more girls than boys is an issue for population growth, but the consequences of having a predominantly male population are far worse. --Brianmc 09:15, 24 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]
Educated women have fewer children because they are off doing something else. - Nyarlathotep 13:33, 4 October 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Wasn't sure which image to use, but decided on the map. the other possibility is the flag. Bawolff 20:15, 23 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks![edit]

I'd like to say thanks to the folks that have done a bit to spruce this one up for me. I think the map looks good on it, and I didn't think to have the little Wikipedia articles box. --Brianmc 08:57, 24 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]
