Population Analysis?

This is an interesting look at the world's population within the constraint of...

What if only 100 people existed on earth

Re: Population Analysis?

Not that many people over 65 after all.

With all the gumph in the news about an ageing population I was expecting a lot more.

Re: Population Analysis?

Yes we are lucky here.

The aged are not led into the wilderness and left there.

Not yet anyway.

Re: Population Analysis?

We'd better advertise for some working age immigrants to settle in the UK.

I'm concerned about who is going to pay for my pension.

According to this, the UK is 24th in the world, with Japan in at number one with 26% - so the answer is obvious. Eat more fish.

Had trout, and beans from the garden for tea earlier Smiley

Because immigrants don't age, or are you proposing a kind of Ponzi scheme?

.

amazingly the exact same one that the house frau already started along with others, the entire EU is geared around enacting a giant Ponzi scam although it will first require getting rid of the old and infirm and half the working remaining populations as well (ideally brought about through social unrest to ensure only group thinkers remain)... but yes they will require a never ending stream of working age young from the developing world (which given how long its been called that you would think they would of been able to achieve developed status by now, were it not for being artificially kept in the dark ages by various western power blocks )

@Minivanman Not news at all, it's long been known that women remain at the age of 29 for a good 20 years!

@nanotm  How many of those of "working age" actually work?

@Jonpe

 

not as many as could be, if there are jobs around that need people then cutting off the never ending supply of cheap labour  will increase the wages on offer, simultaneously enacting slash n burn policies on welfare for everyone who isn't disabled will also encourage folks to work

 

and once you have the majority in work there is no longer a problem, if you also enforce retirement at a statutory age point and don't permit oap's to steal jobs from the young you will also see less wage compression and a higher general quality of life for everyone not least of which will be the oap's who can have a higher pension because there are enough youngsters in work paying taxes.... 

 

but since the civil service is in charge of making brexit happen we wont be getting anything better just further descent into some dystopian hell where the bourgeois nouveau riche elite sit in their ivory towers and keep the proletariat stuck in the mud, and of course it wont matter how many elections we have or how we vote because they will be safely enshrined in their seat of power over the water and send out the storm troopers every time there's any uproar about how bad things have gotten .... and how much better the world was before the EU killed it

Crazy idea having that Brexit vote.

Re: Population Analysis?

It's not all bad news: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-40644850

The gap between the richest and poorest households has narrowed since 2008, especially in London, although London is still the most unequal region in the UK.

Not that I've noticed.
