Article says that the rate of global population increase is declining and at the current rate the total world population will peak at between 9 Billion and 10 Billion around the year 2070. At that point the global population will plateau (according to the UN) or begin to decline (according to the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis).
Which of the following is likely to occur? You may choose more than one.
A. The global economy will stagnate.
B. There will be many new job openings caused by more deaths than births; unemployment will drop to near zero and the economy will boom, thus proving anti-immigrant economics correct.
C. The decline in the number of people spewing carbon into the atmosphere and using natural resources will reverse global warming and heal the planet.
D. The Keynesians will react to global economic stagnation by cutting down trillions of trees (thus offsetting C) to print quadrillions of dollars.
E. Cyborg Bill Gates and the other population control freaks will party like it's 1999.
F. China will institute a mandatory 5 child policy.
G. Farmers will be left producing a surplus of food for a population that no longer exists; Big agra will lobby the government to prop up food prices by buying up the surplus and destroying it.
Unfortunately, as an economic trend or investment thesis, this can only be described as glacial.
