The Graying of the Great Powers

Been a little while - time for another Chuck's Book review.

This one added a surprising bit of optimism to my view, in that while America is facing a very real demographic crisis, the rest of the world is, also - but worse. The US will continue to be the place to be, as countries in Asia, the Middle East, and ESPECIALLY Europe have massive population bombs lining up on them with no real way to avoid it.

It's a DRY read, but worth the time to understand why the next decade holds a very high likelihood of a global war and massive realignment of global power, but America's unusually high reproductive rate for a first-world country will continue to provide us with the most powerful economic and military engines in the 21st century.

I give it 8 out of 10 Post Brady Law Bullets.
