Depopulation in France and the rest of Europe is finally getting people's attention. The government is offering money and tax incentives to have three or more children. Right now France has a relatively high (for European standards) birth rate of 1.9. That includes; however, the non-Frenchified immigrants (read: those who like to burn cars) who have large families which skew the average. Only time will tell if the effort to begat more French will work.
