Philip Cohen comments on birth rate anxiety

Reporting for KRCC in Colorado, Sam Sanders details the confusion faced by today's 20-somethings around dating, as well as imperatives, especially among women, for establishing a career path."All this raises alarms for the economy," he write.

Faculty Associate Philip Cohen echoed the sentiments of Jennifer Glass: immigration can help. "We should not worry about the birthrate in the United States," he told Sanders.
