Demographic Winter

Demographic Winter is amazing. The facts are backed up before your eyes and the final conclusion is not what you think it will be. If you don't want to know the conclusion, stop reading now as a spoiler follows this sentence. I assumed that they were making a case for something that I learned years before; that we do not, in fact, have a population explosion and therefor it's a good thing for the economy for people to have children. But what they are saying, and actually prove, is that (yes, we have a de-population problem and) we need the family unit for economic reasons. The comparison with Sweden was jaw dropping. And then the very last statement with the person being interviewed's face slightly out of focus just made everything so clear. Great.
