An attempt to raise the birth rate

BACK in 1990, Chile’s fertility rate was 2.6 children per woman. By 2011, according to the World Bank, that figure had dropped to 1.8, matching Brazil as the lowest in South

America. Faced with dwindling fertility, Chile’s president, Sebastián Piñera, has implored his compatriots to have more kids. Last month he offered them money to do so.
