With candor, excellent research, and a sense of humor, Jonathan Last dispels the overpopulation myth with the stark truth: nations across the globe are facing a population collapse. Wolves invading sparsely populated boarder villages and childless villages being sold as garbage dumps might sound like a fiction novel, but this is a reality facing Germany and Japan, just two of the many nations dealing with drastically low fertility rates. Sub-replacement fertility rates cannot be summed up by one or two causes. Last covers the many elements contributing to declining fertility rates, from government policies, economics, and secularism, to education, marriage trends, and much more. Learn what could happen (or is happening) to countries whose birthrates have collapsed and what can be done to prevent a population collapse.
