A new report from the U.S. Census Bureau clearly shows the tragic trend in the decline of marriage among women under the age of 23 having their first baby. It is now far more likely that a young mother will be single or cohabiting.

This results of this trend are so bad that not even the Census Bureau can hide it as they find ". . . that women with nonmarital first births experience higher family turbulence than women whose first birth was in marriage. Taken together, all of these data suggest that women with nonmarital first births may face continued disadvantage over their lives compared with women with marital first births."

I am digging into this dense study and will have a full blog post on this soon . . . please stay tuned. #family #marriage

New blog post: Ending Demographic Winter: Go Back to Church?

From an economic perspective, this relationship between church attendance and the birth rate does make sense. Religion essentially extends one’s time-horizon to include multiple generations–children, grandchildren, etc. However, from a secular viewpoint, children are a burden that detracts from “living life to the fullest”–after all, your short time on Earth is all you have. Therefore, children are more likely to be valued in a religious household and less valued in a secular household.

Illinois has the fifteenth highest tax burden in the nation for 2011.

However, their tax burden would have been lower if not for the "temporary" tax hikes in the income tax (individual and corporate). The individual income tax rate jumped a whopping 66 percent to 5 percent from 3 percent. Now some policymakers not only want to make the tax hikes permanent, but to also make it progressive. 

Yet, progressive income taxes in other states, such as Maine, have proven to be an anchor on their economy. Illinois policymakers should heed the economic lessons from other states and let the scheduled phase-out of the higher individual income tax rate and corporate income tax rate proceed as planned.
