This is a good topic with many angles to think and write about:
Americans have been the consumers of the world for decades and now it's ending quickly; as a result, the world economy will continue to shrink, and
with steady human population growth, especially in Third World countries (mostly slave labor countries), it translates into fewer jobs with more
people globally. Basically a recipe for disaster everywhere on the planet.
Environmentally, it's a good thing, with less boats, trains, trucks, and planes spewing out less carbon and toxins. Less factories dumping less waste
and material and consuming less resources.
Basically, if human population globally was to sharply decline it wouldn't seem too bad but in reality it's the opposite.
By the way, I read that birth defects are rising sharply in China. No surprise there as many in the scientific realm have been saying recently that
China is unsustainable environmentally and that they will be experiencing catastrophic repercussions for their people and wildlife due to the
destruction of the ecosystem (which eventually spreads around the world in time). Basically you can pollute your house only to a degree before it
comes back and sickens and kills you.
This may be a good time to finally remove the "go forth and multiply" statement from the Bibles. Predictably, of course, the religious will still
try to have their litters regardless of what happens
