Another chicken little story about the impending collapse of the economy because of falling birthrates.

Choice quote: "For those who fear an overcrowded planet, this is good news. For the economy, not so good."

    Thanks for nominating this story. It's very worthy, so we'll do it up in style on the Wall of Shame next week. The whole notion that an economy needs to keep growing at a high rate even if the population it serves is beginning to level off? Absolutely absurd and thoughtless!
