Japan’s Population Falls by Record in 2012 as Births Decrease


Japan’s population last year declined by 212,000, the biggest drop on record, according to an estimate by the nation’s health ministry.

That’s the largest reduction since the ministry started recording the data in 1947 and a sixth straight year of declines.

The number of births fell by 18,000 to a record low of 1.03 million last year, the ministry said.

Any wonder then that Japan is leading the world in robotics and automation?

Remember the 80's? The purchase of Rockefeller center, Columibia Studios, etc?

It's not so easy for prognosticators and academics to see all these predictions fulfilled, you know, LIKE GLOBAL WARMING, errr, climate change, and this being the 'Chinese' century.

Instead, (this is a fact) Japan sells more adult diapers than infant ones.

Anyone predict that?

Epa, shhh.

You're giving our secrets away.

I don't want the folks out there to know that the reason we know how things are going to work out is simply that we're all so old we've seen it before, almost exactly, in the 70's and 80's.

LOL

By the way, the most bitter part of this whole process, for me, has not been making the predictions, but watching them come true.

I really, truly hoped we were wrong.
