Why Immigration Is The Only Solution To The West’s Demographic Problem

Economists have been warning about the demographic cliff in Western countries for decades, as the white population continues to age, and birth rates continue to decline. Modern economies require perpetual growth, with ever increasing populations to fund the government and retirees. A falling population means falling revenues for governments, and no money for retirees who weren’t fortunate enough to save for their retirements.

Top economists have been urging Western countries to open their borders and increase their immigration rates in order to avert this demographic disaster. The IMF has stated that refugees are the key to economic growth in Germany and other stagnating European countries. Importing young, fertile migrants from countries with high birth rates, and providing these immigrants with welfare and job opportunities, is a proven way to boost a country’s young population and to reinvigorate its economy. Diversifying a country’s ethnic and cultural makeup is also proven way to boost economic growth and foster a more dynamic business environment.

Many laymen often wonder why we cannot simply allow a country’s population to fall, and let the economy adjust to service fewer people, rather than importing more people from other countries. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, the days of saving are over. The majority of people no longer save for their retirement, and instead expect their children to take care of them in their old age. Society has recommended that young people go into as much debt as possible to get college degrees and buy houses, and to use credit cards for shopping. These young people will likely have no savings when they age, and will need a large population to finance their retirement. Secondly, our monetary system is not built to handle economic contractions and readjustments. At the heart of a modern economy is a central bank, which perpetually expands the money supply in order to achieve maximum employment and price stability. When companies scale back and fire people, people start saving instead of borrowing and spending. This causes credit to contract and triggers an economic death spiral, which has to be avoided at all costs.

Opposition to refugees and immigration is largely driven by racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia. When it comes to economics, opponents of immigration have no leg to stand on. It will be they who suffer in their old age if they choose to pursue isolationist, closed-border policies, which only exacerbate the demographic problems facing the West. It’s time for the West to put aside their prejudices and start thinking about the future. Diversity is beautiful, and Western countries who open their hearts to immigrants will reap the benefits of a thriving young population in years to come. For the sake of our children, we must act now.

I must admit to being only 95% sure of the central thesis of your argument until I reached the very last sentence. Yes, for the sake of our children, we must welcome immigrants with open arms. We need to do much more, however, to make our country an attractive destination for immigrants. Think of it in terms of building a competitive advantage; if can create the right conditions for people from all over Africa, Middle East and Central America to come to the US, they will not be tempted to go elsewhere such as Germany and Britain.

Yes, the last 5% is the hardest of all. Funny how some countries always challenge ur complacency by producing great leaders. Mutti Merkel is so way ahead of the game in Germany is unbelievable. Not only did she corner the market in immigrants before others even started thinking about it. She knows exactly what to wear for the occasion. Now that’s what I call a womyn!

The decline of white populations is a significant blessing in disguise. Accredited academics have shown that diversity improves a multiplicity of sociological metrics, including economic productivity, LGBT+ rights gauges, and a range of happiness indices. Simply put, fewer whites means fewer instances of microaggressions and fewer manifestations of White Privilege.

Refugees are smart, tolerant, hip, educated, and, most importantly, progressive. They’re bringing more advanced religions, like Islam, and more accepting attitudes towards global governance and other social issues. Every refugee should be handed a voter registration form immediately.

“Refugees are educated”
I don’t know, I’m waiting for the first batch of 25 Syrians that I have decided to sponsor, but for immigrants I can confirm; you cannot imagine the number of Algerian/Moroccan physicians, biologists, engineers that I’m meeting each time that I have to take a taxi.

Um, sorry, but accredited academics have shown exactly the opposite…even Harvard. Diversity produces the opposite of those things according to the studies.

However, this is SCIENTIFIC RACISM and has been “long discredited,” therefore it should be ignored in the face of the prevailing narrative.

Please remember: according to the main tenets of CRT, if the facts conflict with reality, they are ignored. There is no need to discredit reality, it discredits itself.

I feel that I need to flag your post, but I am not sure if I need to use domestic terrorism or hate speech flag. Unfurling American flag is offensive to all other flags in the world – are you proposing American exceptionalism? On the other hand, we need to celebrate MLK day, and in that context unfurling flag is perhaps OK. I await verdict of hu’s with degrees in CRT (not humans, because that would be sexist).

Exactly, its American exceptionalism that makes the flag so offensive to other nations, and why its so important for all Americans whatever their color or creed to raise their flag on this day of all days. If Shariah don’t like it, TOUGH!
