Fertility crash

This is the biggest problem of the modern world – and will continue to be so until robots get really good.

The article itself is loaded with insight, and I will offer just one gleaned therefrom and offer one criticism: In the United States, fertility rates have dropped from 2.12 children per woman to 1.72 today, and this has happened in the last 13 years.

Until then, you’ll have mass immigration of people that aren’t like you. It’s the only way the governors know to keep the ponzi scheme economy going.

Almost half of all countries have fertility rates below the replacement level, according to an unprecedented study published by The Lancet journal. While there was not a single nation with a fertility rate below the 2.05 threshold back in 1950, the global average is now only 2.4 — down from 4.7 about 70 years ago.
