|概要||This paper challenges the established ideas that the trends of a nation’s falling and aging population need to be reversed. It presents a variety of arguments, evidence, and simple reasons of logic that highlight many of the positive opportunities afforded by these demographic trends, which are increasingly being experienced by industrialised nations.
With world population more than doubling since the 1960’s, rather than reversing this demographic trend, industrialized nations should embrace them as an opportunity to improve their citizens’ quality of life, reduce environmental footprints, and move away from an economy which indiscriminately seeks growth, towards one of 'steady-state' development.
