Since about 1875, when an anonymous author, Paterfamilias, candidly admitted that the rationale for limiting family size is to enjoy a higher standard of living, the typical business tycoon–Ford, Rockefeller, Gates and Buffett–has held that it is a sound business principle to support population control, to increase disposable income necessary for their products to be bought.
This is probably an irrational attitude engendered by the economy of scarcity, which falsely regards prosperity as having a negative gradient; whereas the truth is that the more liberal the culture of the commonwealth, the greater and more widely distributed is prosperity, for those at the top and for those at all economic levels.
It is unlikely that there could be a dispassionate study of the issue–whether or not larger families actually increase the market for manufactured industrial goods–because academics are typically invested in the abortion mentality.
