“This report is about the geopolitical implications of “global aging”—the dramatic transformation in population age structures and growth rates being brought about by falling fertility and rising longevity worldwide. Its viewpoint is that of the United States in particular and of today’s developed countries in general. Its timeframe is roughly the next half-century, from to- day through 2050.”
“The report explains how population aging and population decline in the developed world will constrain the ability of the United States and its tradi- tional allies to maintain national and global security. It not only assesses the direct impact of demographic trends on population numbers, economic size, and defense capabilities, but also considers how these trends may indirectly affect capabilities by altering economic performance, social temperament, and national goals. Although the focus is on the developed countries, the report also looks closely at how the striking demographic changes now under way in the developing world will shape the future global security environment—and pose new threats and opportunities for today’s graying great powers.”
