No. But 1.70 is nevertheless less than 2.Well, when I took math class 1.70 was greater than 1. Has that changed?Not in the developed world, they don’t. And if current trends continue, that claim will soon be untrue globally.But note that wealth also dissipates over time because most people have more than one child.
The Total Fertility Rate in the USA, for example, is 1.70 children per woman, or 0.85 children per parent.
Most people in the USA, Europe, and Australasia have fewer than one child. In the US, people have 85% of a child, on average.
When I took a biology class, 2.0 was the expected number of parents per child. Has that changed?
