Japan’s Population Problem Is Straining Its Economy. The World Is Watching for a Solution
FULL ARTICLE HERE
When it comes to Japan’s economy, there’s actually two of them.
In Japan A, an urban-industrial corridor stretching about 300 miles from Tokyo through Osaka, you’ll find cutting-edge businesses and world-class wealth. In Japan B, which is just about everywhere else, small cities and towns are dying as people move to Japan A in search of opportunity.
While other major developed economies are headed down a similar path, Japan has a head start on them when it comes to aging and depopulation, making it a cautionary tale for policy makers across the globe.
Something happening on a show turns into a board comment.

This is going to be a problem in most first world countries in the coming decades as medical advances allow people to live through more chronic conditions.
I feel like Japan had a jumpstart on this issue due to the fact that their diets and nutrition appear to have been better for a while.
