Join GIC as we partner with Drexel University's LeBow College of Business for our annual half-day conference, this year focusing on the impact demographics has on politics.
Changes in the size and composition of a country's population are gradual, even glacial, in comparison to the fast pace of economic change and financial market volatility. Yet these changes will exert strong influences on the path of economic growth and the political stability and character of a country. What types of populations are supportive of the development of democratic style governments? When a bulge of retiring workers wants to sell its large houses and financial assets to a smaller group of younger residents, what happens? What are the implications of the age pyramid for the ability of a country to fund its social liabilities? Can there be "job creation" if there is no population growth? If population growth is achieved through immigration rather than through a high citizen birth rate, what happens?
