Empty Planet: The Shock of Global Population Decline

Darrell Bricker & John Ibbitson - 2019

Learn about population trends throughout the world – which countries are declining now and when others will decline. The information is fascinating and the implications for society are enormous. Almost every major population center will peak in the next several decades and begin to decline.

In Japan population has already peaked and all of Asia will soon follow. China has 1.4 billion people today and is projected to reach 560 million by the turn of the century – just think about the impact of losing nearly 60% of the population. Many European countries are already in decline and most others will soon join the downward cascade.

The United States and Canada are just shy of reproducing the population today however both countries are open to immigration which offsets much of the decline. Worldwide population trends are the exact opposite of the Malthusian projections that we have read about for so long.

Don’t miss this book! How good intentions and bad ideas are setting up a generation for failure.
