Old people cause healthcare costs to rise. Old people cause labor shortages for the younger folks. Old people put a strain on our financial services, and government services, system. So, according to internationalists (who are also probably "population bomb" and "climate change" prognosticators), the elderly are a global risk, especially with shrinking birthrates (except among Muslims and illegal aliens).
The G20 finance ministers and central bank chiefs are meeting in Japan, where, according to AFP, a rapidly ageing population is becoming a major domestic problem.
"What we are saying is, 'If the issue of ageing starts to show its impact before you become wealthy, you really won't be able to take effective measures against it'," Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso, the meeting's host, told reporters late Saturday.
So, in other words, wealthy elite old people are not the problem, it's the rest of you peasants that are putting a strain on the system. But who will they be able to reduce your numbers, old folks, you know, before you "naturally" reach the end of the rail-line?
Aging, according to all of these experts, piles pressure on the economy. It can't be helped. Thanks to science we have longer life-expectancy. However, unless you are Muslim, or an illegal alien in the United States, your group of peers is also experiencing a sliding birth rate.
What to do, what to do.
By 2050, the world is projected to have more than two billion residents aged 60 and above, more than double the number in 2017, OECD says.
But many economies have failed to update their pension and employment systems to adjust to the changing demographics, experts warn.
This has resulted in fiscal and debt risks for whole countries, as well as individuals.
What to do, what to do.
Logan may know (you know Logan, don't you? He was a runner. You know, from Logan's Run, the mid-seventies movie where getting old means death . . . I mean renewal through carousel).
"You basically have a very large portion of mankind that is ageing and then the workforce is shrinking. But I would say the G20 in particular are ageing faster," the OECD secretary-general told AFP.
"These are trends that will continue, I am afraid. It's not something you can suddenly stop."
In other news, euthanasia ... oh, I mean "Death with Dignity" ... cases are on the rise.
Experts say in order to guarantee the minimal physical ingredients of a decent life to everyone the population needs to be dropped to 1.5 to 2 billion people rather than the 7 billion who are alive today or the 9 billion expected in 2050.
Hmmmmm, how would we be able to drop that kind of population weight so quickly to save the planet?
Could the global left be on the verge of calling for genocide? They won't use the word, it might alert the locals. You know, like how they want to confiscate all of our guns, but are careful not to actually use that word. For the wholesale slaughter of those they don't believe to be beneficial to their engineered society they'll find a fancy and more acceptable name for it later so that the normal public will just nod and agree.
"Carousel! Carousel! Carousel!"
If you are a Christian Conservative, or elderly, be prepared to hide. If the democrats get their medicare for all, it'll be easy. They'll just begin denying services to certain people. But don't call those committees "death panels" ... that might give away the truth.
