It seems that the timeless classic "A Christmas Carol" contains some demographic lessons for us too.

Three vignettes about Christmas and the Demographic Winter

We Baby Boomers rationalized having fewer kids by saying we were Saving the Earth. As luck would have it, our ecological religion of smaller families allowed us higher incomes and consumption than we could have had any other way. But we didn’t think through the human reality of that trade-off. Smaller families, more adults living with roommates instead of with families, more loneliness.

Merry Christmas!

Late December is traditionally the time when one starts to make resolutions to start eating healthily again after the food packed days that have come before. Or perhaps we can put it off for just a few more days – early January perhaps? In any case, according to the The Economist it is no longer just the Western world whose waistlines are widening.
