Japan's population crisis

Drop file here to send
By host - anderson-olsen
Japan’s population is decreasing since it hit a peak in 2008. The total population in 2017 was 126.7 million; since 2010, the nation has lost about 1.4 million people. The shrinking population is having a major impact on our economy and society that will continue over a long-term period, while people tend to feel that its short-term effects are small and negligible — and therefore the policy response may come too late.

In addition, because of the myopic character of national politics due to the periodic cycle of elections, lawmakers’ interest in the population decline might be lower compared with day-to-day economic and social matters. However, the population decline puts the sustainability of Japan’s society and economy in danger. The list of issues caused by a falling population is very long, and we need to tackle each problem carefully.https://www.japantimes.co.jp/opinion/2018/09/05/commentary/japan-commentary/need-sense-crisis-depopulation/#.XC98MPkzbIU

Japan's population is shrinking fast. The country's birth rate is dropping and the aging population is increasing.

What can you say about Japan's population crisis? Should Japan be alarmed by this?

I am Japanese who lived in Tokyo working until midnight almost every day. The working condition is hideous here and it is very expensive to raise a kid, mostly because of education fee. Who wants to have a baby in Japan under this conditions?

Japanese love personal suffering! They don’t heat their home or schools!

I heard about this before but I don't really get it. If education fee is high, how the government could ensure a highly educated workforce for the society? Is only rich families could support their children to go to colleges? If it is, that's is sad.

Oh yea personal suffering, we love it actually...Well the government doesn't seem to care about education so much. It just depends on parents. If they are rich, kids go to expensive private schools. Otherwise their kids don't go to college. Very simple.

Yes it would be desirable. Too many people resulting in competition for the dwindling resources of the planet and destruction of the environment.

Nature will find its way to have the right amount of people on Earth, that's for sure!
