Limits to growth/rev II

In May, 2021, a BRT blurb titled Long Term Time Bomb predicted the dire future of China vis a vis its declining population, something unable to be curtailed as many young Chinese people simply do not want children. The official start point of the decline now reads 1/17/23 but this is not the only depressing news as the population itself continues to age thanks to China's one child per family edict implemented to curb the country's population growth back in the day.

The end of economic growth is coming as declining populations will not be able to produce as much stuff as the world moves further into the 21st century. Sustainability is key is it not?
