Demography for Democratic majority? Not really….

Brian Lilley | 15 April 2009
I’ve been fascinated by demographics for years, first learning of their practical application during a foray into the world of arts marketing, learning how to sell theatre tickets by looking at people’s life stages, income, or background.

There are good, solid uses of demographics to forecast trends, and then there is the ridiculous. Often, the ridiculous uses have to do with politics.


Bleaker House

Michael Cook | 08 April 2009

Do I detect a new genre of film and novel emerging about below-replacement fertility? The first that came to my attention was Alfonso Cuarón's bleak film Children of Men. This was set in the UK in 2027, when global fertility has mysteriously dropped to 0.00. P.D. James's novel with the same title, upon which the film is based, is, if anything, bleaker still. Now I see that Booker Prize winner Anita Brookner has published a new novel, Strangers, about a retired bank manager who has no wife, no children and no relatives.

Welcome to Demography Is Destiny. We launched this to counter two media memes: that humans are a cancer which is destroying our planet and that world population is spiralling to unsustainable levels. The real story is that intelligent and inventive human will rise to the challenge of climate change and that our real problem is the coming demographic winter. The editors of Demography is Destiny are Marcus and Shannon Roberts, who live in Auckland, New Zealand. Send them your comments and suggestions.
