Don't worry, they'll be vetted as well as that Crazy Guy's wife was in California.

Who is the good negotiator? who is the good business woman?

Hillary is much better. She left the WH broke and a decade and a half later, she's got $120+M.

And she made her money by giving away our shit, not even her own stuff!

Lots of violence on the way whenever you have disproportionate numbers of young people. That also happened here (crime rate began to skyrocket in the mid 60s and didn't begin to fall until the early 90s when the youngest boomer turned 30).

But David Brooks says that no matter what you think, you gotta accept she devoted her life to Public Service.

This guy is so far removed from reality and in the Beltway Bubble it's not even funny. Seriously, some of these people are worse than Marie Antoinette.

Western women are VIOLENTLY against this and speak out with as much hate and contempt as they can possibly muster.

Every other romantic movie targeted at 30+ women is about meeting the exotic Italian/Greek/British guy who invariably has at least some fund of money.

It's hilarious because every woman who is violently against Western Men looking abroad, complaining about slumming for chicks, has seen Pretty Woman 100 times. You know, where the handsome middle aged guy falls for the Hooker, who has a heart of gold.

We had great demographics in 1980's and 1990's prime age labor force growth was awesome then

Growth for some, not so much growth for others.

The Silents had it great: Scarce Labor.

See my above post... there are about as many millenials and boomers - that wasn't the case in the 70s and early 80s when the boomers dominated the demographics, overarching all other age groups.

Yep, too many young people disproportionate to the rest of the population, all forming households at once and entering their prime consumer years, create inflationary pressure.

I think the proportionality is the issue. There are many millenials but just as many boomers. When the boomers were in their peak years, they overawed all other age groups.

More people working at JC Penny and Costco than the entire population of Iceland, 330K people

So what? We're speaking of general trends. It's amazing Iceland can support 300,000+ people on pretty much fishing alone, hardly much tourism.

And Japan? Lots of people, 4 small islands.

Also: a youth bulge creates inflation, which creates the temptation to strangle growth to kill the inflation.

See the 1970s, worldwide.

Your first 2 countries, not Norway or Denmark, they found a oil boom and have a relative small population

Sweden then. Or Iceland, which has nothing but fish and volcanoes. Or Luxemborg. Or Austria. Or Japan.

I'd much rather live in Japan than Egypt if I was 20 years old.

Declining population means higher wages and cheaper rents for the young! Some things must get done, can't be substituted or automated as the supply of labor dwindles. The less people, even if the housing stock completely stops expanding, landlords will have to offer bigger space and/or cheaper rents to fight vacancies.

It's also fantastic for the planet, for education, people and esp. children become more important, etc.

In societies with too many young people, life becomes cheap, pollution gets worse, education sucks.

It's why neoliberals are desperately open border, even though all but the dimmest must feel the pushback. Can't let their landlord and low wage service donors feel the pinch!

You're comparing countries that have low Per Capita Income to the United States of America, it's a silly thesis

Norway doesn't have a high per capita income?

Egypt and Bangladesh should be flooded with industries taking advantage of all that young, energetic labor!

There is a group of us that are pilling up names of the new normal, secular stagnation, Great Depression Deflationary and going to make our point that these people just aren't versed in economics enough to know the difference

I find a lack of investment in basic science, inequality, lack of wages tracking with productivity gains, etc. to be better indicators. Nothing that reimposing Glass-Steagal, Tariffs, government-led subsidized affordable housing contracts, and AMT for Corporations can't fix.

Nice choice of countries

What, they don't exhibit large numbers of young people? Whereas Norway and North Dakota aren't heavily composed of old farts?

If youthful demographics made things better, Egypt and Bangladesh would be paradise; North Dakota and Norway would be hellholes.

Wasn't there a similar case where some lady lawyer offered to give a cabbie head, then accused him of rape, and the proscutor and police were so excited to nail the guy - until his dashcam footage came out?

Yep:

What about undeserving 40 year old first world women?

Does every 40-year old woman deserve to be married to the man of her dreams, or are some just overgrown immature teenyboppers with wrinkles and cats?

A 40-year old man with a career and some money has every right to be father and seek out mates. Nobody would ever dare criticize a 40-year old woman from going to France or whatever to find a Husband. In fact, it's half the plot lines from Single Mommy Porn and Sex in the City!
