Scott Galloway on population decline and the secret sauce of US success
The United States is already feeling the effects of population decline, and in an interview with Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, tech expert and NYU Professor Scott Galloway warns that we're verging on "population negative."
With many people choosing not to have kids due to financial constraints, Galloway suggests that AI may be a solution. He points to countries like Japan and Italy that are already experiencing negative population growth and are feeling the negative effects.
To counter this trend, Galloway proposes creating a context of economic security that provides more opportunities for young people to have families.
But he doesn't stop there, arguing that immigration is a key part of the solution that has driven the US economy in the past, while other countries that refuse to open their borders to immigrants, like Japan, have suffered.
