Anyone heard of this theory? Basically the world is not re-populating like it once was and the elderly outnumber the newly born 10 to 1. Germany will lose 80% of it`s population by 2050 scientists say. Some countries are trying to get their citizens to reproduce. The workers will not be here to do the manual labor any longer, and the ones that are born are more likely to be educated and do more technical work. Globally speaking. So, are we seeing the end of the human race?
Germany has 81 million people, and their population is expected to shrink to between 65-70 million, depending on net migration. This is a projected loss of 12-18%, NOT 80% as you say, and this is forecast for 2060, which is 10 years later than what you state.
The loss of 10 million people is hardly depopulation, since Germany has the lowest childbirth rate in the entire WORLD.
12-18% population loss will still have devastating impact on German GDP, which is the competition meter these days. Unless they find technology or immigration or change of child policy (which is terrible in Germany) to make up for that obvious loss of course. Societies tend to reach equilibrium at one point or another anyways, but the immediate impact can be harsh for people living through that time.
The Grey Tsunami should rather have been called The Great Pension Hoax. How many here believe that you will actually get the pension they tell you? I don't.

The meek shall inherit the Earth. As long as those enlightened modernites retain their contraceptive mentality their populations will decline, and if that happens in a welfare state, their culture will fade. Forecasts about the implosion of babyboomer retirements go back about 20 years. I suspect that France, Greece, Spain, Italy, and a number of European states north of Germany will suffer such a crisis because they will lack a necessary working age base to fund retirements and social services. The only way to avert such a crisis is imigration if they retain that contraceptive mentality. Either way, in fifty to one hundred years they may lose their national identity and that country will change forever.
