Leslie Root Op-Ed: Why we shouldn’t worry about falling birthrates

Once again, the opinion of Postdoc Leslie Root has drawn interest from the Washington Post as they publish her second Op-Ed “Why we shouldn’t worry about falling birthrates.” “Birthrates have been causing a lot of angst lately…To illustrate our depopulated future, the media invokes empty bassinets, abandoned houses and lonely elders. It’s time we all take a collective breath. Reports of our demise are greatly exaggerated,” says Leslie.
