US Records Slowest Population Growth in Century as Births Decline

Gone are the days of 2 percent yearly increases

Sad. The only good thing about it is that it spells a slower growth of the Empire’s economic base, and fewer potential stormtroopers for its wars 

Editor’s note: If I recall correctly when you discount first-generation immigrants and their progeny America’s natural population increase looks very much like that of the supposedly “dying” Russia — ie it’s stagnant or barely growing.New figures from the US Census Bureau detail a troubling trend in the “greatest economy ever,” one where this year’s population growth is the slowest in a century due to decline births and lower immigration trends, reported AP News.From 2018 to 2019, the population in the US expanded at .48% or about 1.5 million people, with a total population outstanding of around 328 million. 

The report mentions how a lack of migrants entering the country along with a decline in natural increase has led to waning population growth since the 2008 financial crisis. 

William Frey, a senior fellow at The Brookings Institution, told AP that the 2019 population growth is the slowest since 1917/18.

“With the aging of the population, as the Baby Boomers move into their 70s and 80s, there are going to be higher numbers of deaths,” Frey said. “That means proportionately fewer women of childbearing age, so even if they have children, it’s still going to be less.”

The Census Bureau said the natural population increased by 957,000 from 2018 to 2019, which is the first time it has breached 1 million since the late 1970s.

Immigration has also been on the decline since adding 1 million in 2016. From 2018 to 2019, immigration inflow only added 595,000 to the total population. 

On a state by state analysis, New York lost 77,000 people; Illinois lost 51,000 residents; West Virginia lost 12,000 people, Louisiana lost 11,000 residents, and Connecticut lost 6,200 people. Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Vermont each lost about 5,000 residents over the period.

Regionally, the South recorded .8% population growth from 2018 to 2019, due mostly to natural increases and inbound domestic immigration. The Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions saw population declines for the first time in a decade, declining .1% because of people moving to the South.

And while the population increases across the world are mainly behind us, the next big demographic trend is one where the global fertility rate could collapse in the coming decades.

We recently noted how Japan, the world’s third-largest economy, just recorded the lowest amount of births since 1874. 

In China, the world’s second-largest economy, a significant dip in the country’s birth rate was recorded earlier this year that showed births in 2018 hit levels not seen since 1949. 

Decelerating growth of the world’s births and soaring deaths are visible around the globe. This means policymakers in the US will take a page from China and Japan’s playbook and create incentives for women to have more children with hopes of staving off demographic armageddon.

China can reverse her birth rate due to the enormous youth population. The only reason birth dropped was due to the One child policy of Beijing which has been removed. With a middle class of 450 to 500 million they can afford to have more than 2 children and unlike America China’s population is not poisoned by Cultural Marxism

The Demographics of the aging baby boomers will significantly slow down the economy as these baby boomers become sedentary and buy less. They are not risk takers so investment into new property and needless consumerism drops. Some industries in the medical and nursing care will prosper but the cumulative effect on America is a massive pressure against growth.

America will inherit the largest aging population of her history since 1776. The factors are unknown of such a large greying population is to America but left to prediction. when one adds a slowing down of immigrants who were and are the driving force of innovation and cutting edge technology in America it foreboding. America would not have made it to the moon if not for immigrants like Werner Von Braun the Father of Rocketry.

Then to factor in the number of babies is insufficient to be a replacement population and America’s economy faces extreme downward pressure especially with a runaway national debt.

Consumer habits are central to America’s economy. During the 50’s and 60;s America saw the greatest growth in the middle class because that was the time of the baby boomer generation and their buying power.

That is still another Demographic point. If whites stayed Christian which meant closing their borders, staying married and having babies America would not be in such a mess.
But you see White women preferred to spread their legs for the Porn industry and not for babies. they became frigid btchs towards their men and the men decided to go gay.

so you believe the jew propaganda that we will cease to exist without a billion non whites pouring in? gee somehow whites lived thru the black plague 1000’s of years of wars in Europe 2 world wars but if the birth rate levels off WITHOUT WARS somehow we will not survive. when there was 200 million people here we had low land prices and high wages. NOW IT IS THE OPPOSITE CAUSE TO MANY PEOPLE HERE

As for those sub humans you should see how white women love them. They drool all over them heaving to mate with man and beast while hating Christ, snorting cocaine or injecting Fentanyle or heroine. So Carbone go fix your white Christian women for they have gone astray.

sambo they aint worth fixing. and it is spelled heroin. since the cave man days woman were never loyal to their men being another tribe would raid their clan and take them. it might happen 3-4 times to them. so it is in their DNA when they see invaders coming in they flock to them. if they were purple same thing would happen

The russians scooped up the nazi talent as well.

Americans will have to awake soon opr it will be Soylent Greens for all.. People back neo-fascism, too ignorant of where it leads and the implications of slashing social safety nets and ignoring infrastructure to feed the MIC.

But at least their heroes hate the same people they do. And the people the hate are the immigrants that make this country great.

Sad.

True they did but America is a nation made up of immigrants. that is our culture and immigrants play a central role in creating jobs, businesses, and leading innovation.
Most American college students graduate in the liberal arts while the pure science classes are filled with foreign students. Now with Trump’s Xenophobic attitude few want to come here.

Hey, I agree with you. I’m for reasonable and humane immigration policies. WHat we have now obviously doesn’t work. This stupid wall is perfectly emblematic of our delusional and wasteful policies.

America is a country of immigrants. It shouldn’t matter that the current crop happens to be another color or of a different culture.

That wall is supposed to stop illegal immigrants. What is so ludicrous about that wall is America continues subversive activities in S America funding civil unrest, overthrowing governments, sanctioning nations and then when we face the consequence of refugees DC blames nations south of the border. I know it is more complex because the wealth disparity between America and Mexico/Meso America is probably the widest in the world.
the legal immigrants are educated and come with skills but Trump’s xenophobia has changed our immigration laws to the worse.

Oh for gods’ sake! It is much better for the planet if the population does go down!!
The governments are the only ones that benefit from a higher population! They make more money and their corporations make more as well…..greedy bastards.
We should just hope that the population continues to go down on its own….otherwise, there is a very strong group of Eugenicists who would love to prepare a cocktail for us all to be gone…that cocktail would be very nasty.

Why? We have 8 billion and there is no shortage of anything for that 8 billion to have the highest standard of living.
The world’s population will rise to around 12 to 14 billion and we have the capacity for that population to thrive.
