An article detailing what we already knew. Namely developed countries are having very few babies. Apparently 68 is going to be too low an age to retire in the UK because of this?

Is the welfare state sustainable? I don't think so. The number of people in work is going to shrink drastically.

AI / automation / technology / improved efficiency will shrink the work week. People will get more leisure time. (Which is a good thing, obviously.)
