Fukushima Japan, Guess What NOW? 10/20/11

It is a wakeup call for the Japanese - they must now change their mindsets and shed their inhibitions about marriage - increase the population is the need of the hour.

If the Fukushima nuclear disaster and Tsunami were not enough, another monster is raising its head – it is on the population front. Not the type of problem that other nations usually have to face due to excess of population but just the opposite.

It has been reported that in another 50-years time, the population of Japan would fall by nearly 40%. The revelation is that the present population of Japan would drop drastically from 128 million to 87 million. Moreover, the population in the 65-plus age group would increase by double to 40% while the population in the 16 to 45 group would decrease..

These would, in turn, pose serious problems with regard to collection of taxes.
