Tesla company CEO and Space-X founder Elon Musk, who revolutionized electric cars in the world, and company founder Jack Ma, who stepped down as chairman of Alibaba on Tuesday, shared the stage together in Shanghai. During this time, despite differences on many issues, both of them remained unanimous that in future, the biggest problem facing the world will not be a growing population but a decline in it.
Jack Ma and Elon Musk, the world’s two successful entrepreneurs, were seen together on the public stage for the first time. Musk said, “Most people feel that there have been too many people on Earth.” But this is actually an old view. ‘
He said, ‘I think the biggest problem the world will face in the next 20 years will not be a population explosion, but a huge drop in population.’ Jack Ma appears to agree with Musk’s point.
Jack Ma said, “The population problem is going to be huge. 1.4 billion people in China, it takes more hearing, but due to a decreasing population in further years, there will be many problems. The rate of population decline will be further accelerated. If you call this heavy fall as a fall, I agree with you on this. ‘
The population will decline by the end of the century
These concerns of Jack Ma and Elon Musk also match the predictions of population experts who argue that the world’s population of people will stop growing by the end of this century. They cite the biggest reason for the falling fertility rate worldwide. At present, there is only Africa in the world where the good fertility rate is expected to be maintained in the remaining years of the 21st century.
Declining population problem for China
Jack Ma pointed out that the population decline in China will have far more impact than other countries. This is also a major crisis for China because the youth population has played a major role in China’s rapid economic development in the last four decades. Now, these young people have moved towards old age, and the number of elderly among the workers has increased considerably. Whereas now the falling population of youth can create a major human tragedy. Women live six to seven years more than men. They will be affected more due to the decrease in population.
