The problems we face have been there for all to see for more than 30 years. They are 'demographic' in nature and it doesn't matter how you paper
it, or digitize it, or monetize it, or whatever.
When you have an aging population, then naturally someone has to provide their care. Problem is, there aren't enough younger people to provide that
care. So the grand plan was to 'set aside' as in SS, MCR, MCD, funds to have available for this situation. Now we all know that nothing was 'set
aside', it was spent (read-stolen) to enrich bankers through wars, debt, etc.
However, I would put forward that the plan wouldn't have worked anyway. Too few young people to care for too many old people isn't fixed by some
paper or digits in a bank somewhere. Because as with anything demand has overwhelmed supply and you can't create younger people out of thin air to
Of course we as a nation stand at something like 30 million abortions over those 30 years. Which would probably work out to somewhere around a 100
million more able bodied workers coming into the workforce. So we probably shouldn't be so surprised about what is going on, it's basic math.
This is why the gov't can't stop deficit spending, it has no choice but to attempt to support the aging population. Unfortunately, the laws of
physics are not open to interpretation. The unsustainable will not be sustained. If you want to see the elderly cared for then you'll have to open
your home to one. Reality is going to get rather personal.
