The economic and sociopsychological foundations of the decentralized decisions involved in the production of new labor power, human reproduction, have never been adequately understood. The consequences for the labor markets of the laissez-faire policies of capitalist societies toward human reproduction are discussed from historical, economic, social, political, demographic, and legal perspectives. The extent to which the production of children causes or exacerbates poverty for the producers of the children is discussed, along with the question of how capitalism can rely on a labor force produced by reproductive whim.

From the Publisher:

This intriguing compilation of beliefs regarding the relationship between population and poverty includes exchanges on such questions as whether poverty causes large families or large families cause poverty; whether or not there is an optimum population size for a nation; and whether social thinkers, including Marx and Malthus, have actually formulated coherent theories regarding the role of reproduction in the economic system....This volume is very useful as a source regarding how various prominent social theorists have addressed population issues.
