Because I follow both environmental causes and the debt crisis, which are both bleak subjects in this year 2009, I don't understand why many people consider discussing population statistics taboo.
But when it comes to that question that perplexes every economist these days, Where will the growth come from? I just might have an answer for you......from the people at Numbers USA.
I can't help but think that those in charge know that increasing populations (with jobs) would help solve this debt crisis. Please know that I am not endorsing this, just stating the facts. Now, I know what some readers here would say...
Here is a graph from Numbers USA worth studying.
