Just a random thought on child support.

What if, rather than paying child support to the mother of the child, child support was instead paid to a general fund which was then divided evenly among the children receiving child support?

Would that change how many children would be had? Would rich guys have fewer relationships? Would more couples stay together? Would nothing at all change?

What would happen if there was no correlation between the wealth of the guy in question and the benefits received?

No comment because I would just be talking about what general transfer payment this system resembles. It wouldn't be "child support."

I had already reconsidered, but hadn't updated the blog, because I realized that the backlash from angry dads would overwhelm any positive benefits.
