What if the government sold special issue bonds for $5,000 that can only be purchased by mothers with a child under one year old, in cash.

the bond would entitle the purchaser to $10,000 tax free paid in a lump sum from the treasury 5 years, 10 years, 15 years, and 20 years from the date of purchase.

here is a financial incentive to have children but only for people with 1) $5,000 saved and 2) the character to wait 5 years for a pay off

Jews would rob orphanages, cut babies out of pregnant women (well they already do, but now the baby would survive), etc

agree that "gaming" the program is a huge risk and potentially sinks the whole idea

That's the point: a giveaway aka incentive to encourage people who've demonstrated some means to care for children to have them, something everyone would agree is good for our nation's future.

Alternately, it's no more a giveaway to the rich than a regular treasury bond

1) doesnt really change the benefit. Might become "over inclusive" by removing the time-preference component, but

2) this can easily be made illegal seeing as j.d. Wentworth and other must report payments to the IRS

You could mitigate the rich criticism by having the pay out only go to education and childcare.

Better payout would be small payments ($1-$2k) in years 2-4 for early childhood care expenses, then a big payout at year 18-20 for college

Limiting the use of money would just raise the prices of those things which the limit allows

By no means does a person need to be "rich" to have $5,000 saved.

A bond payout is not a transfer payment

Also if the money is not restricted there are too many possible uses for any particular class to experience significantly increased quantity-demanded

Think of the current 529 requirements. Loosen them for legit early childcare expenses and you have it.

and it is an indirect transfer payout, as you're giving above-market interest in a presumably tax-free context via the govt
