In about 25 years, more than 75% of the world could be shrinking in population

March 21 – A new study has shown that global fertility rates have been plummeting since the 1950’s and will steadily decline over the next few decades to the point where experts are predicting a huge demographic shift – in the world. 

The average number of children born to a woman in her lifetime makes up the fertility rate. 

In 1950, the number was 4.84. 

In 2021, the number was 2.23. 

Predictions say by 2100, the number will have fallen to 1.59. 

Just from those statistics alone, you can imagine what that could do to the world. 

Attorney Clint Barkdoll said, “Some of it ties into our discussion about social media and cell phones. For reasons we could debate all day, the younger demographic, they’re simply not having children.” 

In many cases, it’s by choice that the younger generation is not having children. 

Barkdoll continued, “This big study that was released yesterday, they’re now predicting as early as 2050, over 75% of the countries in the world will be shrinking in population. In other words, the death rates will far exceed the birth rates.”

This would be the first time in world history that the global population will shrink. 

Barkdoll said, “The UN is now weighing in on this as well. The UN thinks that some of this may happen even more quickly. This is obviously not an exact science, but yet there does seem to be consensus that these trend lines are going in the direction that you’re going to see a shrinking population probably within the next 30 years.”
