    The Changing World, and why we are fuked...

    This is an interesting VDO.





    So, if the population in Asia and Africa is massively increasing and the per capita income is also quickly increasing - they are getting wealthier. &, if the western world is not significantly increasing in either population or per capita income then the slice of the global pie: wealth, power, % of middle class is moving. The west is going down, and the East is taking over!

    How could the West stop this? Maybe by increasing the wars and strife and troubles in the East? Maybe by increasing poverty in Africa and the East? Maybe by boosting our western populations? Welcome to our world today...

    Any thoughts?
    (Luckily we have Libellule to explain all this to us...)
    How do I post these pictures???

    ^ indeed, hence why it's better; one can see if the figures he predicted for 2015 are accurate.

    Also, detailing a history (particularly when history is rewritten so quickly nowadays) is always useful.

    One potential problem here is that he does not detail what the predictions he mentions are based on - thus we just can't analyse his model.

    What's that saying?

    "The sins of the fathers will be visited upon the children"

    There's a bit of that in this.

    There's also human evolution, so no need to panic, everything takes its natural course.
