Visualizing The Rapidly Aging Western World

From issues such as declining fertility rates to the ongoing complications resulting from China’s famous “One Child Policy”, there are many demographic challenges that the world must grapple with in the coming years.

However, Visual Capitalist’s Jeff Desjardins notes one problem of particular importance – at least in places like Europe and the Americas – is a rapidly aging population. As the population shifts grayer, potential consequences include higher dependency ratios, rising healthcare costs, and shifting economies and cities.

    The attempt by Europe to bring in taxpayers to finance the pensions and healthcare of their aged population is an attempt to prolong their giant Ponzi scheme. Those who are currently elderly are the beneficiaries; everyone after is risking getting nothing when the scheme collapses. This pension/healthcare Ponzi scheme is actually going to collapse faster with the importation of huge numbers of immigrants who attempt to take advantage of the unemployment/welfare Ponzi scheme that lies in parallel with the pension/healthcare Ponzi scheme.

    It can’t continue, and it won’t. And then people will start dying because of the collapse of this Ponzi scheme and the likely collapse of the countries that ran them.

    You can’t see Monaco on that map. Median age 52.5. They are really suffering.

    Rubbish! By importing 3rd world garbage they will most certainly get “higher dependency ratios and rising healthcare costs. Nevertheless they remains the agenda. Other countries outside the West also have an aging population, but they have not made the stupid mistake of importing the rest of the world.

    God is going to punish white western women for mass-slaughtering their men’s children by giving them a thousand years of child-gang-rape-slavery at the hands barbarian savages.

      I think the fact that actions have consequences will result in the same. When you consistently vote for political parties who import en masse the 3rd world and you are part of the crowd of “Welcome Refugees”, then you have made your bed. Of course this also includes the so-called males who did the same.
