Depopulation Crisis?

The old bleeding the young dry…

Stanley Kurtz has a piece up at Policy Review titled “Demographics and the Culture War.”  Kurtz’s piece considers the negative effects of aging populations and declining birthrates, both of which seem to be occuring globally, in regards to maintaining the welfare state.  Kurtz’s review of this issue, spurred by the reading of four fairly recent books on the subject, is mostly centered on how the welfare state can continue under the onslaught of the two aforementioned effects, without actually casting a disapproving eye on the fact that the State has played a very major role in our alleged arrival at this juncture.

Though a bit of a long read, it’s worth looking at.
