Government, an Asocial Mother

In a commentary published in the weekly Veidas, LFMI’s Policy Analyst Kaetana Leontjeva writes about the Lithuanian government’s “childbirth policy,” explaining why it should be consistent and purposeful. The Government’s current financial obligations “are much faster to increase the state debt than boost birth-rates, and as a result, every child is overburdened with a portion of this debt,” meanwhile future commitments (to education and healthcare) are not being contemplated and arranged.
