  • My theory is that population growth drops rapidly as soon as your society requires both parents to work. For the society to have children at a replacement rate, the economy needs to support a stay at home parent, or people will think it's too hard to have children.

  • I hadnt really considered it that way. I was always under the impression that the overpopulation issue stemed from having to accomodate enough potable water sources, livable space, and food produce without overexhausting the food and space and water we have past a certain point. If thats incorrect then they need to make sure people are correctly informed on this.

    • @Chuck Scott your argument makes zero sense. Neither parent pays child support when adopted. If the dad has more custody and has the kids over 50%. Mom has to pay child support. It’s literally the exact same for both. . . Also both men and women can relinquish custody. My uncle did that to not pay child support.

    • “Alexandre @Chuck Scott It's called being held accountable. Otherwise, you do you sh*t and walk away freely to continue being an as*hole.” As long as women have the right to abortion, men shouldn’t be forced to pay child support. And as long as a mother doesn’t have to pay child support to the adoptive parents when she puts her child up, men shouldn’t have to pay child support.

  • Reasons for this phenomenon 1. Shrinking of middle class requiring both parents to work 2. Dramatic increase in cost of having and raising children, particularly cost of education 3. Increase in work culture generally taking more and more available time from families

    • ​@Jakki Manzitti even if both parents work 5 days and 40 hours a week the same problem presents itself. It's evident that you can't have a large family under these conditions. One parent would have to tone down their ambition a lot, and most often that is the wife. A working couple may manage 1 or 2 kids but that obviously is beneath replacement level as well. The ideal situation would be a steady state population, but then you need at least a considerable amount of couples to have 3 or more children.

    • Yeah, my wife and I have one and there's absolutely no doubt in our minds that one is the right number. We feel very fortunate to have a child at all and even though we're both well educated and have jobs, the short and long term costs of having another child would be too much. Whete I live, having larger families seems to be the preserve of the rich.

    • The cost is not the big issue. Job security and certainty of a regular income stream over time is the big issue. A single person can have the flexibility to move location for a new job or survive on short rations in hard times if this is needed. A family unit does not have this flexibility. They must stay put whiie the kids are in school and the other partner is still in their job. Children are notoriuosly inflexible when it comes to cutting back on expenses in time of need. This is why many people are not starting families like they used to.

  • Whenever anyone complains about an aging population, what they're actually complaining about is modern advances/factors greatly increasing life expectancy and reducing child mortality. For 99% of humanity's history, our population increased very slowly and was kept in check by infant mortality, disease, famine, natural disasters, war, etc. In ancient times when parents had 6+ children, on average only 1 of them would make it past age 50. That was the natural state of things. Industrialization and modern advances caused an insane population boom + substantially longer life expectancy + an economy reliant on everyone working nonstop, and an aging population is the consequence of that. It's not a population collapse, but rather the population falling back to what has always been normal for humanity.

On the other hand, it's also scary what the reality of our harnessing oil, the reality of its existence has done to ourselves and this earth. It's why we're in the rock-and-hard-place predicament we are. Losing access to oil will be a fatal catastrophe to most of us. Forever finding more oil would be the same. Not just to us in the latter case, but to all life. That being the case, the reality of the situation, that we will lose access, is the better of the two scenarios.

  • Having already discussed this 'problem' with most of my friends, who are nearly all single or in a relationship with no children. Most of them including myself are in the mindset of 'how would I find the time and money to bring up children?' Personally I find it an ongoing exhausting daily grind, just to look after myself and my partner. I live in the UK and I'm 46 years old, so it's never going to happen. My partner has just taken on a 2nd job as it's the only way she can get some savings in the bank, so I see her even less now. The UK government will finally realise, probably when it's already too late, that an economy can't survive without it's minions to do all the crappy jobs that they wouldn't want their kids doing.

That book came out in the 70's and scared me so bad I went down to the doctor and got a vasectomy. I wasn't going to have any children if I could help it. Then years later, when my wife started feeling her hormones ebbing away she begged me to have it reversed. In those days it was a 50-50 chance of success by it worked for me and we had two kids.

At current rates, populations will not begin to decine for another 66 years until we reach about 10.4 billion people.

    • You underestimate the way pendulums swing in the world. Now it seems our population is just growing too fast. And yes the population in many 3rd world countries will continue to grow and more than compensate our decline. Absolutely. But these countries will eventually catch up too, and start declining as well. Some maybe as late as 2100 but it will happen. After that the growth rate becomes a number smaller than 1. That's exponential decay, and it goes RAPID. In the absence of a reverse trend by then the population will just keep collapsing until we get into trouble. And for me it is unclear what could trigger birth rates to go up again, other than some cataclysmic event(paradoxically perhaps, but that actually is a birth trigger).

  • Yes, let's just ignore the burning little detail that many people who want children are horrified by the price tag attached to them. Long gone are the days where people could get married at the age of 19, have one spouse working a 9-5 job and able to easily afford to buy a house, raise four children and get a few luxury items along the way. Now we're all being saddled with mounting student debt that cuts into our ability to buy an ever more expensive home with ever decreasing wages, not to mention that the very act of having a child often costs as much as that child's college education will, and that's just what the hospital charges for the birth.

    • Most people I know in their 70's+ started working right out of high school and were extremely fiscally responsible. I'm all for education and going to university etc but it needs to be a means to an end. Most people who do degree after degree are just taking themselves out of the work force in their prime earning years and shouldn't be surprised when they don't really have much money or any money. You start working as early as possible and save your damn money. You still won't have it as good as your parents did but then they didn't have it as good as we do in some ways either.

  • I think it overall comes to supply and demand at the end of the day. Our grandparents and great grandparents lived in a time where the population was small that there were more resources to go around for everyone. Nowadays, the population has grown significantly that there is less resources to go around than those whom came before us, and prices of goods have reflected that. This raise in prices and education has in my opinion started to reduce humans' growth rate, and it has helped keep our population in check by reducing fertility rates. The prices of our finite resources will only keep rising while our population increases, further reducing growth until its at a point where the population starts to decrease. For example, I'm having to decide whether to choose to get educations or rent since I can only fully afford one. I'm 21 and can't fathom being able to financially raise a child ontop of that. My apartment requires material for it to be built and they are limited and have an overall trend of increasing in price. Same applies with other resources. The earth can only support so many people. A lower population would benefit from more resources. I think every country and person needs to reflect on quality of life of its citizens. The world population should hover at 2-3 billion people imho with an equilibrium of people in different age groups. This way at least people of every age group can enjoy the resources. The fertility rate should absolutely not be 0.9 for prolonged periods but enough to reduce the population to a level which the land they live on supports the population, which at that point the 2.1 replacment rate should remain to maintain the replacment rate. At least then people don't have to worry about lack of resources and prices and can live happier more balanced lives. I also think we'll need to recycle our materials better since they too are finite on this planet. There has also been new breakthroughs where scientists were able to reverse aging in rats and help them revert to a younger age, which might be a breakthrough on immortality and will definetly expand to humans at some point. Which will probably be another factor to consider at some point. If humanity really wants to grow, it needs to expand to other planets that there is more resources to maintain a population. Only time will tell what ends up happening in the future.

    • @CB is me Hard to say. At the same time, the American lifestyle is very inefficient with its current infrastructure at least. People live on land very spread out. It's a lot more costly to maintain infrastructure with taxes when people are spread out than in denser areas like European countries. Overall I agree it will be a struggle to maintain, but who knows what solutions might come in the future to address it. Right now all eyes are on Japan since they are a large advanced country currently experiencing the effects of a decline.

    • The money to provide services and infrastructure, to maintain it etc comes from taxes, if there are no younger ones coming up through the ranks, then standards and services drop. The same for commodities, they more buyers, the less the cost, the less buyers, the higher the price. Less people working, and less money being spend due to the drop in numbers, will mean less. Look at the world economies after C-19 and the shortage of supply, it's going to be a lot worse.

De-population would be good IMO. But the problem is that aging populations would be less innovative, inventive and more risk adverse. More sclerotic. Also the current capitalist system requires continuous growth. I think de-pop will be a good thing, but we need leaders who can address these future challenges. Our current leaders can't even address the current challenges Care to nominate any real Leaders you of ? And if you say Greta .... then God Help the Human race.

In a falling population you will have a shortage of producers and an excess of consumers. Economics 101 makes that a really bad thing. Interesting problem really, not sure if there are many solutions other than to just go through a population cycle and hope tech advances can reduce some of the burden.

    • @Tyra Lodriqkes " she cries for not doing the things she should have done before she got married and had children." Yes its very common. Particularly for those that got married really young. My mother was like that, but went the extra mile and left us all behind chasing her own happiness. However, for the country it turned out good. She had 4 kids in total, those kids went on to have 8 kids, thats what the country needed, so at least we are good in that respect. No matter how useless we are, we need to keep reproducing otherwise there will be nothing. I mean, look at Russia now: they are in a very bad population implosion, and Putins answer was: lets waste the men we have, and whatever limited economy we have, going to war with Ukraine, and all of the nations backing it, which includes billions of dollars of aid from the US. Completely nuts! All it does it place even more burden on Russian women to have kids, which they wont do.

    • @Lieshtmeiser I agree because my cousin acts like she is happy but in truth, she cries for not doing the things she should have done before she got married and had children. Everybody around her thinks her marriage is everything but they don't know the truth behind her smile

  • I have to admit I actually thought that the world would be over popularated for a long time until recently? This is a real eye opener I'm pleased I watched it now I know better.

  • How can you not comprehend the fact that the world is beyond hope and having kids is the worst mistake you can make? Only a truly sick individual would sentence an innocent life to suffering more than we already are.

    • or a normal thinking human with the problems. I never consider myself to be a good template for a human hell I was struggled in school and never could remember things like other kids. I have to read a book for hours to get good grades but won't recall it a week later when other kids my age could off the top of their head 3 weeks later. and it repeated though all of my school life. I got very depressed sure I got good grades but what does that even mean.

    • @Frank Jacob we've been living in the bright times… Our society is all greed and pure selfish desire. Ask 100 young adults what their goal is in life and you'll get the answer “Money and expensive things” as your answer from them all. The future is ugly

  • Well, twenty-four more years and we get a new chance at selecting either survival or roasting. I want to see the dark Sun's rise in the sky, and the rebirth of our dear yellow Sun a decade or more later. I'll be old AF but, honestly, there's nothing better than going on one more day. Guys, teach your children as you would wish to be taught in future. That WILL happen, you know. (If you don't, well, either find out or prepare for the strangest story you'll be in.) Good day!
