According to the head of Tesla and SpaceX, the drop in birth rates on Earth could be one of the biggest risks to civilization.
If people do not give birth to more children, civilization will collapse. Mark my words <...> There are not enough people. Elon Musk
According to the billionaire, the trend of a shortage of people can be noticed by looking at the available analytical data.
We will remind that earlier the financial conglomerate Morgan Stanley published a note in which he spoke about the negative impact of the refusal of an increasing number of people from having children on the global birth rate.
Various countries are trying to deal with this problem. For example, even some regions in China have introduced cash subsidies to encourage childbearing.
