State’s Child Population Tied to Economic Future, Myers Finds

January 10, 2013

Daily Mail (U.K.) featured research by Dowell Myers of the USC Price School finding that a decline in California’s child population could harm the state’s economic future. NBC News Los Angeles KNBC-TV interviewed Myers about the situation. “We expect our kids to grow up to be good workers and great taxpayers,” Myers said. “But we have half as many as we need to support all these older boomers who are going to expect healthcare and someone to buy their house.” The research was also covered by the Sacramento Bee and San Jose Mercury News.
