Genius Idea: Turkish Cupid

If it goes wrong, blame Mossad. While China limits, Turkey comes with cash.Like most Prime Ministers these days, Ahmet Davutoğlu wants his fellow citizens to have not just a hell of a romantic Valentine’s weekend, but a successful one too.

The Turkish PM has even gone so far as to offer cash rewards for conception.

That’s right, in addition to forcing companies to ease maternity leave conditions, Ahmet Davutoğlu’s government will now fork out 300 Liras of taxpayer money for a couple’s first child, and 400 and 600 for their second and third.Your country asks for at least three. Do your duty.

The real message here? Turkey needs to stimulate some growth.

This cash for children program falls under the President’s plan for Turkish families to have at least three children.

Paying people to procreate? What could go wrong?

Enjoy your Valentines.

    They also want to get women out of the work force. The new maternity leave laws will make the hiring of women less desirable.

    A lot of countries are doing this now; it's not a Turkey thing.
