MigL Posted July 23, 2016 Share Posted July 23, 2016 Not if you consider each person individually, Phi. Its not cheap to raise a child if you don't consider the contributions from parents. A baby/child/young adult, before they reach their 'productive/contributing stage', might be more expensive than a retired person. It is always 40 people contributing/supporting 85 people. I'm not saying it couldn't be done, but having more people of a working age would definitely help, and that is a reason for immigration policies in the Western world.
