CWN Editor's Note: “The potential consequences of plateauing and then shrinking populations in the decades ahead are almost wholly ignored,” writes Zachary Karabell, former head of global strategies at Envestnet,. “The mismatch between expectations of a rapidly growing global population (and all the attendant effects on climate, capitalism, and geopolitics) and the reality of both slowing growth rates and absolute contraction is so great that it will pose a considerable threat in the decades ahead.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
