The Maine Wire: Maine’s Human Capital Problem


“When the birth rate falls below a critical level, population recovery, or even stabilization, becomes numerically impossible. Unless we do something to turn this around, a desirable and vibrant future for Maine is not possible.  Government purchase of private lands is the last thing we need to worry about and prioritize.”


“Instead, we need to attract, raise, and retain people if Maine is to have a future, and we need to provide abundant opportunity for these people if they are to have a future that keeps them here, prospering and raising our next generations.  And strengthening the basic societal construct of nuclear family.”

“It’s time to put aside programs like “Land for Maine’s Future” that play to unwarranted and outdated fears, and put the focus where it belongs:”

People for Maine’s future, and a future for Maine’s people!”
