Some good news for a change! Data from Japan seems to show that their population has stabilized over the last three years. One can only hope that Japanese government officials will stop wringing their hands over their “aging population” and realize that never-ending growth is unsustainable and a bigger threat to their economy and security than a transitory blip in the average age of their population. And one can only hope that our own government officials will come to realize the same thing. Hopefully, our population won’t have to increase ten-fold (to the population density of Japan’s) before we see the same result.
