Attached is a graph of child fatality rates over a period of time that encompasses 1935. I doubt you can locate 1935 on this graph, showing that there is no correlation between government economic assistance for children and child fatality rate.
I don't quite understand the specific argument you're making.
Are you suggesting that decreasing the amount of aid we give children would translate to fewer children dying in the streets?
