Incentive proposals for fertility control have stimulated considerable debate and only narrowly conceived trials. As a result, there exists a tendency to dismiss almost offhandedly the entire concept of using material incentives to further contraceptive practice before any have been adequately tried. Moreover, a majority of proposals thus far have been characterized by a search to uncover the "one best way" to circumvent the myriad frustrations encountered in attempting to reduce birthrates in traditional societies.
