    Demographic Doom? The Number Of Children Per Household Is Collapsing

    "Forget debt and deflation: the biggest threat to the global economy and the future of modern civilization as we know it, may be demographics, according to a recent Euromonitor study.


    Whereas over the past decade policymakers have been mostly focused on how to reverse the global infatuation with debt and how to reverse what appears to be a structural decline in inflation (assuming the economist-accepted definition of CPI which conveniently "hedonicaly adjusts" such surging costs as shelter, healthcare, education and in many cases food), an even more troubling trend has been observed in recent years: due to a culmination of factors including falling fertility rates, rising divorce rates and expensive real estate, family sizes across the world are shrinking.
    And unlike in the past where this phenomenon was largely contained to Japan and a handful of developed nations, RBC notes that almost all countries are set to experience a decline in the number of children per household in the 2000 - 2030 period. More specifically, looking from 2015 out to 2030, Euromonitor expects developed markets to have a ~20% decline in the number of children per household and developing markets a ~15% decline. In fact, as the Canadian bank points out, it was as recently as 2012 when the number of couples without children globally surpassed the number of those with children . . . "

    We are being consumed from within. If you are an honorable, intelligent, hard working, high income provider and a good father, you will get screwed in the 50-50 coin toss called marriage through divorce.
    . . . the legal-judicial system has destroyed more families than you can imagine, and the lawyers on both sides make a killing . . . "

    It'll truly be the matrix. The only ones breeding are the peoples living off government assistance. They, as a group, loathe the notion of intellectual thought or self improvement. All take and no give. They will propel the movement of "guaranteed income". A livable wage provided by the government for doing nothing. They will stay at home, fuck, reproduce, stream Netflix, and nothing else.

    Two or three generations later we will have a shortage of qualified persons to fill critical roles in societies structures.

    Who will collect the trash when they can settle for 75% of that pay to stay at home and do nothing?

    Who will clear the wreckage off the highways?

    Who will build and repair the highways?

    The sheer volume of the unwashed masses will intimidate the "elites". They will need to shelter themselves from the hordes of vandals and looters roaming the country in gated communities with razor wire perimeter and 24/7 private security.

    Police and educational staff are currently severely underpaid for the hours and risk they work. Who will accept taking a bullet for the protection of citizens when they can stay at home and do nothing for 75% of their current pay?

    The future looks dim, even without factoring in the negative effects of feminism.

    Before the renaissance different episodes of plague killed a huge chunk of the european population, the plague followed wars and conflicts that had the same effect.

    Once there was again enough land and enough space for the survivors, Europe left the middle age and reached a better phase for peace, trade and general wealth.

    Right before the wars and the plague, the economy was no longer sufficient to feed the population which outgrew farming output and food importing limits.

    Regarding our future, those who will suffer the most the collapse of welfare are the same ones responsible for it, would be ironic if it wasnt serious.

    Regarding women, with their hedonism, dual mating process and greed they basically lead to the current state of things...no one of them has any idea how little value a single old woman with no kids will have in the future coming.

    I love how deflation is listed as a threat. Yeah, and central banks printing endless amounts of fiat currency out of thin air and lending it out with interest is just fine, lol.

    As for the low birthrate, it's only one symptom of a collapsing civilization. This has all been done before and it follows a predictable pattern:
    "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage." ~ Alexander Fraser Tytler

    With automation and robotics, why is a reduction of population bad?
    You no longer have unemployment, jobs would pay well, the individual would be appreciated...

    But we cant have that!

    There must be a large number of people to depress salaries and create an abundance of employees looking for work.

    This society is dying and decaying, there's plenty of babies being born in growing populations, it's only a matter of time before they and their culture move in and take the west over, it's happening already in every western country with mass immigration, say goodbye to feminism and gynocentrism, and say hello to an Islamic nation! The numbers and western policies don't lie, they tell a chilling truth in the reality of this situation. It only takes a couple generations and we're wiped from the face of the earth! Bon'vioage!

    This could be a sign that people are acting rationally. Look at this world. Would you want to bring an innocent life into it? I sure would not. Let it burn to the ground and start over.

    What you say makes perfect sense, the only problem is the overwhelming amount of old people sucking welfare through pensions and health care while demography reset.

    Nature has a brutal way of dealing with an excess burden of old people, disabled, single mothers, and other non productive people. The current situation will only persist as long as the economy is strong enough to support it.

    People breed less when there is better health care and reduced infant mortality, provided that having lots of children is a burden. With unlimited amounts of welfare, free houses if you pump out more than three kids and all the rest, this natural limit on family size vanishes.

    So developed cultures having fewer kids is not in itself a problem, provided they meet the replacement rate of 2.4 (which they aren't, btw).

    What is a problem is importing people from "more kids is better" cultures, and giving them free hospitals, schools, housing and all the rest.

    The Victorians were dreadful people. They threw unwed mothers into laundries, where they worked as slave labour, and their children into orphanages and workhouses, where they also worked as slave labour. But the Victorians also built an empire that spanned the entire world.

    This is so true. There is a movie about this, and by coincidence, it has the same title. It is listed as a 'comedy' movie, but it is a documentary about the sad future:

    You can get it from PirateBay, there are 211+ seeders:

    People on the dole can propel nothing .

    But big business in cahoots that pay engineer a wage of an apprentice laborer now they can propel whatever they want .

    Its financial capitalism already , even the smallest of investment firms have multi trillions of heaven dollars , and can destroy any country on any planet overnight if there is a profit in it .

    People and their votes are only there so people would think its there .

    Nobody cares what you accept or not , on the dole or not , working or not .

    There are more skilled workers in fucking Myanmar than there is in USA or if its not truth , well lets wait for a few years and there will be .

    Its not that easy actually . If somebody offered you 70% of your wage for doing nothing plus free housing and utilities ... We know the answer , dont we ?

    It happens because its cheaper for the big government business not because people accept it or not . Nobody asks anybody .

    Same as nobody is hustling for less than a dole pay ...
    You cant keep a player down!
    Dont hate him , hate your fuking bullshit game !
