    If 73% of the jobs are going to women, who’s going to have the babies that form the next generation? Why aren’t we employing men? Liberalism. Ugh.

      I suppose you can hire a nanny and they can have the babies as well as take care of them. Sounds like a progressive idea to me.

          Actually, one of my coworkers became a surrogate mom for a Japanese couple. She was married and already had four of her own children. Pregnancy was easy for her and she ended up carrying twins for this couple, their egg and sperm, not her biological children. She is an unusual person and a Trump supporter!
          In Japan, surrogacy is not allowed.

      The low fertility rates have little to do with economics. If it did, rich women would be having lots of children and poor women would be having none. The opposite is true. Poor people have are the ones still having the children.

      The problem is almost entirely cultural.

        Actually it’s all about economics. Poor people in poor counties have lots of kids to work the farm or in the factories. They need more kids for labor to make more money. Parents in rich countries do not need child labor so they have fewer kids. Fewer kids lowers their health care and child care costs and allow for more free time and disposable income which increases their wealth. Your conclusion about fertility rates was spot on. But you need to flip your argument. I took a whole global economics course on fertility rates by country. It makes sense once you consider how common child labor and the legal indentured servitude that exists in many cultures.

          I’m talking about this country. Not third world countries. People with lower incomes and education are the ones having kids.

            The same applies to this country. Women who want careers and desire higher incomes have lower fertility rates. Children can be a barrier to a higher income and economic independence. Poor women are more likely to receive additional public assistance for additional children. So their fertility rates are higher.

              I can kind of see your argument, but I still think it is cultural. The question is why do women want higher incomes and a career instead of a family? Previous generations of women were not like that. Conservatives like me say it is because the family has been destroyed. Feminists would say it was because of lack of opportunity. Regardless it is the same thing. The culture used to demand that women have children and be homemakers and that men be fathers and provide for their wife and kids.

              As far as women on public assistance, there welfare queens for sure, but for most people having kids just makes their life more challenging and their economic situation more difficult.

      Maybe if the culture and living expenses didn’t demand it, more women would stay home with their kids. As it is, choosing to do so requires having zero disposable income whatsoever and budgeting very very carefully to make all the necessities.

      And what’re your views on paid parental leave?

      IBM, because of the nature of business solutions it sells, is in a great position to assess global business expansion plans. Her point was that various uncertainties that likely have been causing expansion planning to moderate, due to risks that those uncertainties would go the wrong way, have now been lifted. That’s a bullish statement.

      We’re seeing a lot of bullish developments economically, especially the strength of the US workforce and its upward pressure on consumer spending, 76% of our GDP. Anyone who makes things anywhere wants to be able to sell into that robust and growing consumer demand. The new sheriff in town has not only brought our economy to this magnificent level, with trade deals approximately half done, our strong economy, especially compared to China’s faltering in the face of US tariffs, has made our dollar stronger, everyone wants dollar denominated assets. EU, UK, and others need above all else to be able to sell, tariff-free, into our economy, and PDJT has made clear that, to do that, all the unfair tariffs and non-tariff barriers that have impeded US sales into their countries must come off first. So the cumulative, stimulative effect of the Trump policy revolution on us and our trading partners are likely just revving up.

      Maria B is certainly one of the best business, economic and even political reporters we have, and her interviews are often news-making. Having the IBM CEO in to tout her quarterly surprise uptick, with Ivanka talking about women’s job growth, was another A interview, in my opinion. It’s reassuring that big old tech like IBM is now playing a major part in bringing cloud efficiencies to the world, taking part in major tech growth.

      IBM could see no future for the personal computer and I find it ironic that they are now pushing to have everything on the “cloud”. That goes back to the idea of dumb terminals and a mainframe. Having control of your personal computing environment is why the PC was a big success. DOS allowed most people to do rudimentary programming but Bill Gates has thrown that out the “window” and convinced people that all they need is the cloud and an on/off button.

      Putting all your data on a server/cloud located who knows where on the internet is not a good idea. It is no longer under your personal control and can be shut off at a whim.

      The State is not a good replacement for the family and providing money to allow someone else to raise your children is not bringing back family life or values back.

        Bert, I know that’s an older popular meme among some right wing sites but please remember President Trump never called himself a conservative (which worried a lot of conservative purists prior to his election) – he is a pragmatist.

        Ivanka reflects a moderate liberal thinking that is very “New York” but hers is tempered strongly by her father’s financially conservative influence (what’s the bottom line $$). I am socially and fiscally conservative and so far I don’t see anything horribly wrong with what Ivanka is promoting because I know the President only green lights what he knows will benefit a majority of his voters.

        The jobs training initiative really began years before President Trump was elected but was always a weak program, lacking strong advocacy from the WH and without strong program leadership. At the President’s behest, Ivanka seized the opportunity and has promoted and nurtured that program into now claiming huge numbers of workers who have been trained or re-trained with new skillsets.

        Ivanka’s advocacy of increasing access to child care for working mothers is a logical next step now that women are staffing the majority of the new workforce. Same goes for the 12 weeks paid leave policy, although I have a problem with that until I can see how the employer (both the government or the private employer) is compensated for the significant lost productivity due to 3 months of absence.

        Just MHO.

          Well from an Ivanka perspective, she was a CEO of a company that sold products to women. Her view is always going to be more for women so they can buy her products or political support.

          Here is an idea. Pull women from the workforce and men will get paid more and women can stay at home and have babies and be a mom. Then nobody has to worry about all this government paid benefits.

            This implies women will have babies with men who will stick around and women have been socialized for a generation now that they don’t need men. And men have learned they are one Tinder swipe away from sex without responsibility. Good luck with that now.

  7. I thought it was a very good interview. What’s with all the vitriol on this thread?

    Right now, in this country, the poor people can get jobs and many are female head of households. The more they are working and supporting themselves, the fewer kids they will have. My observation is that at this point, Hispanics tend to have more children but as they integrate into society, that will come down. They are Catholics, mind you, and they don’t believe in abortion or birth control other than the rhythm method. I think African Americans are having fewer children than in the past. It seems to me it will all even out. I’m really not worried about the birth rate….I mean talk about looking for something to worry about…reminds me of global warming and climate change. Creating future problems.

      The highest abortion rates are among Blacks, followed by those Catholic Hispanics you claim don’t believe in abortion. According to statistics, Hispanics account for 25% of all abortions in the US. Lots of single mothers among Hispanic immigrants as well — 49%! That means more unwed mothers+abortions than married Hispanic women.

      So much for Catholic family values. I don’t even mention rape and incest which are apparently common, as Ann Coulter’s extensive research indicates.

First hand experience. And yes, machismo is strong but that has nothing to do with what I am talking about and neither does the black abortion rate other than affirm they are having fewer kids.

        You should keep in mind that abortion stats are very fluid as doctors and medical facilities are not required to give medical statistics to HHS and other federal or state agencies unless those hospitals/clinics are funded by the govt.

        A private practice, where more white and wealthier women/girls are likely to be patients, will not have to produce information to the feds whereas a state run hospital or free clinic must provide all procedures performed. This obviously will skew the data. This, I believe is where the “more than 1 in 3 black women in NYC will abort their pregnancy” comes from.

      It doesn’t matter how many kids they have but the values they hold and will pass on to their children.

    Guess Torvald was the little penguin who could after all, eating Windoz lunch. IBM replacing Gate’s DOS treachery with Linux. How delicious! Ain’t life grand?

    Ivanka was also involved in “Davos 2020 | Reskilling Revolution: Better Skills for a Billion People by 2030”
    This one really concerned me, as these folks were talking one world gubmint, at first glance.

    But no. Ivanka has taken her ReSkilling Initiative on the road to the snooty ta-tas, as a concept for use in other countries around the world. One needs remember the most important Trumpism –
    “the nation-state remains the best vehicle for elevating the human condition.”
    https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/remarks-president-trump-72nd-session-united-nations-general-assembly/

    One must keep that in mind as one listens, and by the world leaders participating, it appears the Trumpism has caught on with the majority.

    From the vid above with the IBM lady, it appears IBM has signed on to the Trump ReSkilling Initiative as well.

    If interested, the ReSkilling vid 30:35 –

    “the World Economic Forum today launches Reskilling Revolution, a multi-stakeholder effort to provide enhanced education, skills and better jobs to one billion people by 2025”

    This is where I cringe. Government workers already have premium jobs and benefits better than most of the private sector. This is more government waste and it will be abused by the spoiled rotten elites. More separation of the haves and have nots. How can a small business afford to pay an employee for 12 weeks without them being productive? Simple common sense. Trump is dead wrong on fiscal spending and growing the federal debt faster than any President before him. I love many things he has done for our country but this is flat out Democrat policy. The rich get richer and the rest of us are left working overtime to pay our bills. Why not give a tax cut to the middle class instead of making government (very well paid) workers even more lazy? This flies in the face of conservative values. More bloated federal spending programs for those that do not need it!

    It is clear Ivanka is being positioned to run for POTUS in 2024. One would have to be living under a rock not to see that. The problem is she is still loathed on the left no matter how progressive or reasonable her policies are. She is seen as stupid and portrayed as such despite her exceptional base of knowledge and fluency in presenting her facts. And she is not liked by the truly conservative small government base on the right. Never Trumpers will still be Never Trumpers. I don’t see how she could possibly win.

    That said, I appreciate that she supports her father and the US so beautifully at these events and that she works for free when she could be living the life of a pampered housewife tucked safely away from nonstop vitriol.
