Fertility crisis? Who says?

Taiwan is a very intelligent place. Women are respected. Smart. Education is a priority. Smart. Cities are clean. Smart. Public transit is excellent. Again, smart.

These conditions lead to a low birth rate. Is that a problem. It shouldn't be.

We have to stop measuring the economy by growth. Why does growth have to be the goal?

Why not do as Bhutan does and measure gross nation happiness.

Gross National Happiness comprises of four pillars:
1. equitable and equal socio-economic development,
2. preservation and promotion of cultural and spiritual heritage,
3. conservation of environment and
4. good governance which are interwoven, complementary, and consistent.
