The interesting graph from the story:
Okay, let me set everyone’s minds straight.
There weren’t 3.4 million foregone births, the bad economy didn’t cost us 3.4 million people. The only reason it seems that way is because back in 2007, important people were foolishly making predictions of annual birth counts of the next handful of years based on the immediate trends of the previous handful of years. And the reason why annual births were increasing in the previous handful of years? The affirmative action housing bubble, Hispanic immigration, fresh waves of fresh over the border Hispanics for cheap labor for the housing construction industry et al., and the women among them got homesick and compensated for the grief by procreating more than they otherwise would have.
Since these “foregone births” are largely Hispanic, it means our day of demographic dispossession has been pushed back a bit.
