Yeah it’s a real thing. It’s actually a bit of humor to start the show off today. It turns out countries around the world, in an effort to boost birth rates, have designed a variety of programs to get your headboards knocking.
The latest is Spain who’s death rate exceeded it’s birthrate last year for the first time. In an effort to boost their birthrates Spain has resorted to hiring an “Sex Czar”.
It’s a typical government response to a problem (hire more people, create a new program) but if I was ever going to get behind a new government initiative this seems like the type of thing I’d support. :-)
In more serious news I want to read an article for you from the Wall Street Journal that talks about the correlation between Japan’s easy money policy in the 1990’s and ours today. I think many of you will be shocked to see how similar Japan’s lost decade is to our own stagnant economy.
It’s a fantastic show today. Thanks to all of you for sharing and promoting the show!
