The first pattern of change I’d like to talk about is the fundamental shift happening in the global population. Based on current projections, by 2050 the growth in Asia will be bigger than the entire population of North America and Europe combined. Hispanics could be one fourth of the US population within ten years So this raises the question how well represented are we among minorities / should we be targeting them In the last 30 years, China has taken more than 400 million people out of poverty and across the developing world this pattern is being repeated – a trend that is helping to drive shifts in the distribution of economic power and wealth across the globe...
www.brusselsjournal.com Millions Will Migrate to Europe From the desk of The Brussels Journal on Fri, 2007-03-16 15:49 A quote from The Daily Telegraph , 16 March 2007 At least 2.2 million migrants will arrive in the rich world every year from now until 2050, the United Nations said yesterday. Britain's population will rise from 60 million to approaching 69 million by 2050 – almost entirely because of immigration. The latest figures from the UN's population division predict a global upheaval without parallel in human history over the next four decades. […] [T]ens of millions will migrate to Europe and America, while the indigenous populations of most countries in the rich world will either stagnate or decline. As a result, the Islamic population will rapidly increase its share in the world population . The world population will increase by 1.7 Billion between 2004 and 2030. On this amount, Muslims will bring 780 million ( 46% ). Today, Muslims represent 24% of world population ( One man out of four). This figure will attain 29% in 2030 ( One man out of three ). This phenomenon would mean serious consequences for many countries: For example, thanks to the enlargement to Turkey and migrations, the population of the European Union ( 605 in 2030) will include 150 million muslim ( Turkey: 90 million, Balkans: 7 million and Western europe: 53 million. This last estimate of 53 million is in accordance with the CIA high projection of muslims in the European Union : 40 million in 2025)
