WHY ALL THE FUSS ABOUT BORDERS AND POPULATION DECLINE, IS CLIMATE CHANGE MAKING IMMIGRATION A PERMANENT FACTOR IN AMERICA'S ECONOMIC WELFARE?

RED DAWN (1984): WAS A FIL FOCUSED ON THE SETTLER COLONIAL PARANOIA BASED IN A FEAR OF A SHRINKING POPULATION AND A GROWING BIPOC POPULATION.


John Milius’s screenplay, where a group of school kids led by star quarterback Patrick Swayze become the most ferocious guerrilla army this side of the Viet Cong, is not only even more improbable than the “Battle of the Arapaho Forest.” It’s a case study in American settler colonial paranoia.


"Milius is smart enough to know that Russia, which is a country of 150 million people, would have a difficult time occupying the United States, a country of 300 million people, so he very wisely decides that most of the invading army would be made up of Latin Americans, Mexicans, Cubans, and Nicaraguans. Milius’s screenplay not only reflects the paranoid Reaganite belief that a left-wing revolution in Nicaragua — a tiny, impoverished country of 6 million people — would be a threat to the United States. He outlines the only scenario by which the Russians could conceivably occupy a country with twice its population and many times its industrial base. They would have to back a united Latin Republic in the Western Hemisphere, and support a quite legitimate claim that Mexico has to Texas, California, and the Southwest. They would have to avenge the crime of Manifest Destiny." S. ROUGUSKI


Cross-border migration and climate shocks have been shaping the economies of the countries in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) for many decades. Globally, LAC is one of the regions with the largest migrant populations—measured as a share of the population of origin country. Patrick Imam writes that a declining and aging population could put deflationary pressures on the economy through lower aggregate demand, a negative wealth effect from falling asset prices, and changes in relative prices reflecting different consumption preferences. In the same breath we realize global impacts will adversely affect the economy in multiple ways e.g. The East Coast Is Sinking. New satellite-based research reveals how land along the coast is slumping into the ocean, compounding the danger from global sea level rise.


Over pumping is a threat to America’s status as a food superpower. Pulling water out of the ground made it possible for America to become an agricultural superpower and one of the world’s largest breadbasket of food. Now 60 percent of farmlands are threatened by a coming water shortage created by greed and lack of populations. Recurring floods sealed Cairo, Illinois's fate, causing it to be largely abandoned by the local government. The town's economic decline, racial tension, fastest shrinking population and lack of state funding contributed to its abandonment. Some residents still live in Cairo, but local government seems reluctant to work on improving the city.


White and youth population losses contributed most to the nation’s growth slowdown, new census data reveals! This is also a significant period because, as a previous report shows, the nation’s white population began to decline visibly in 2016. This visceral and acknowledged white population loss occurred before the pandemic and is related to the aging of the white population, effects of climate and deaths of despair due to rise in addiction across the country. which has led to fewer births and more deaths—losses that are projected to continue. And as shown below, the pandemic has exacerbated this white population loss.
