When it comes to fertility rate ,Poland should do what the Russians are doing.
No thank you. That just encourages breeding for the sake of getting cash, as has been seen by the rise of the "chav" phenomenon in the UK.
The best encouragement is to offer a tax credit (applied against one's tax bill rather than in cash). You've got one child? Okay, you have 10,000zl a year higher tax-free base. Two children? That's 25,000zl tax free a year that you can earn. Three children? 50,000zl. And so on.
This system rewards those that earn well and who breed, thus encouraging the elite of society to have more children. The work shy will find no motivation to breed under such a system, which is very positive.
Poland should, or actually MUST ensure and fortify it catholic culture and heritage right now.
Yes. We absolutely must keep out people from the 3rd world, such as Brazil. Their version of Catholicism is disgusting, what with the vast amounts of flesh on display in Rio every year for instance. Do we want our children to see such disgusting things? Of course not.
The fact is that more stay than leave - why isn't the government's so-called "pro-family" policy encouraging them to procreate?
To be fair Polonius, Germany has a lower rate than Poland, so it must be more complicated than simply a matter of providing cash.
