  5. 5. Is a declining population a problem? YES!
  6. 6. Problems Decreased economic growth Labor shortage – so more immigrant labor Less taxes – fewer workers  health care costs  pension costs – burden to taxpayers retirement age

  22. 22. Rule of 70 A way to estimate the number of years it takes for a certain variable to double. The rule of 70 states that in order to estimate the number of years for a variable to double, take the number 70 and divide it by the growth rate of the variable.
