This seems like the type of program that is needed to incentivize women to have children that societies worried about declining population should consider. I do hope it requires that they be born in that country, otherwise they may find older women immigrating there to take advantage of the system?

Perhaps include a stipulation that they must assimilate into the culture? Otherwise this is just inviting people to forcibly change the culture by way of numbers. Not saying this is some Conspiracy, it's just the nature of the area.

They shouldn't be promoting having kids, they should be promoting forming families. Give tax breaks to couples after 3 or 4 years of marriage. It's not enough for more people to be born, they need to be raised right.
Fake Doors 6 months
@DKO You are assuming that if a couple is married then the kids will be raised right? Bad couples "staying together for the family" can do more emotional damage to the kids then if they lived with single parents.

What woman with 4 kids even has time to work lol? They should give the husbands the tax exemption, and promote staying/getting married.

what about men with 4+ kids

This isnt about male versus female its providing incentives for couples, or native adopters of the country to conduct their propagation to inceease the birth rates of the country and increase the population
Weaponeer (Low Speed) 6 months
This is exactly about male versus female. “The measures announced Sunday by Prime Minister Viktor Orban during his “state of the nation” speech are meant to encourage women to have more children and to reverse Hungary’s population decline.” Women typically will vote or follow anything leaning towards welfare “financial security” in their favor. Men typically pay more taxes, work longer hours and take more dangerous jobs. This would have been better if they would have provided similar incentives to get married.

Well, I think the mention of women was simply because women tend to be tge more hesitant to have kids (the barrier, if you will). I think the spirit of the policy is simply incentivising families with lots of kids

sounds like a good way to accidentally increase crime by increasing the amount of single mothers.
Fake Doors 6 months
What? How? How do you connect more single mothers with more crime? Plus, nothing in that story as I saw talks about single moms.
Vault Tec USA 6 months
Paris is simply making illogical cause and effects. A single parent household does not contribute to more crime, many individuals have both parents, or even more if you count step parents that contribute to such crime rates.

Actually, single parent households are more likely to have children involved in crime than two parent homes.

this legislation can be fixed so easily by replacing "women" with "families". I live in America and my wife and i postponed our marriage for 2 years (after having kids) because it is financially better to stay separate while having children in America. technically it would still be financially better for us to be separated still, but we decided to get married anyway.

It didn't work under Rome's Augustus, it didn't work under Fascist Italy, surely there are other examples of why what you said is true

Weaponeer (Low Speed) 6 months
This is unnecessary. They legalize abortion and in some countries they demand it (I’m looking at you China) and now they are worried about the country’s birth rate?!?! Government created this problem with incentives for women. How about tax incentives to the men that will have to take up the slack to pay for this plan? Or how about capping taxes for all so more people will be willing to have more kids?

DKO 6 months
@M Y T: assuming they're not out of wedlock. Just look at the USA to see how the state paying to raise kids of single moms has ruined the black community. Don't pay for the number of babies, pay for people to be willing to actually start a family.

Ralph 6 months
as long as it's not comendeered by leftists to boost immigration quotas they'll be fine, we should have something like this for us citizens as well.
Weaponeer (Low Speed) 6 months
This could be fixed easily by making abortion illegal and forcing the parents to take responsibility.

They should put money into having a great parental leave system like in Sweden. It does encourage people to have kids, gives enough time at home for BOTH parents so both can spend time with their kids but also go back to their career if they chose so.

Sweden’s population growth came purely from immigrants

Hitler was the god-father of every woman's 7th born son. Just going to leave that here.

It should be extended to fathers as well. Women can't breed by themselves. Give the men their dues. But I agree with this, nevertheless. Lowering taxes is always good. And this isn't free money being given out to lazy welfare queens who just sit at home and breed all day. This is just people being able to keep more of their earned money, so I'm glad for it. We should implement this instead of our shitty welfare system.

I am hungarian, I want the guy dead, but there is no such a thing as a life tax.

Connor 6 months
So now women will have 4 kids with 4 different men, treat their kids like shit and be a crappy mum, all for the tax exemption. Stupid policy.

Way to boost overpopulation Hungary. Though, I do wonder how they’re going to pay for all those new hospitals, schools, roads, houses and other amenities- as well as paying out all those unemployment benefits- when they’re bringing in less money. Seriously, a declining population is not a bad thing.

It is when you dont have enough youth, to propagate your culture and work in your country, which in turn leads to you depending on outsiders and making you less self sufficient. instead of having the problem of possibly allowing immigrants with vastly different cultures than your own then change the dynamic of your nations identity

Hungary has second lowest fertility rate in Europe at 1.32 where 2.1 kids per couple is replacement.

Sort of reminds me how ceauscu in Romania used same programmes to incentives women to have more children well.. its going to bite Hungary in the arse in the end

Well i doubt women with 4 kids pay any tax in the first place, unless they are maried to a super rich guy. It seems this is all smoke and mirrors.

What's going to happen if a majority of women have 4 children.

Jus Saying 6 months
This should be for whatever parent is raising the children, not just for women. If a women leaves the father to raise the children on his own then those tax exception laws should pass on to them.
