Roundtable Presentation

October 21, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Utah Population and Environment Council (UPEC) encourages you to attend a roundtable presentation Monday Oct. 21 starting at 7 pm. We will be meeting in the basement of the SLC Library, Conference Room B.

Come hear UPEC Board Member and University of Utah economist Steve Bannister discuss the results of UPEC’s white paper, “Utah’s Fertility Decline: Richer Lives for All.”

Did you know that Utah’s total fertility rate – the average number of babies born per woman over her lifetime – is at a new low of 2.1? This figure is the “replacement rate.” Barring unlikely, dramatic changes, Utah has already reached the tipping point that will lead eventually to lower population levels. This is good news. The crucial point of this white paper is that we need not become any less rich per capita as we enjoy the ecological and aesthetic benefits of a smaller population.

Steve Bannister is an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Utah. He focuses on Econometrics, Economic History, and Economic Development.

There will be a presentation of the white paper followed by discussion.
