Reader Bran who lives in Spain sent some interesting charts of population, expected population growth, the world’s largest cites, and what people do for a living. I don’t have links for the charts, but most show the origin.
Seven Billion People
- 4.30 Billion Work
- 1.90 Billion too Young to Work
- 0.43 Billion Unemployed
- 0.58 Billion 65 or Older
Total about 7.2 Billion people
Cities With Projected 2030 Population of 10+ Million
Top 10 Mega-Cities by Population
Anyone have any concerns over these numbers in regards to jobs, food, housing, cost of education, healthcare costs, or retirement?
