Japan’s demographic cliff

Japan is widely seen in the midst of two lost decades as ahead of the rest of the world is moving through its own demographic cliff. The country’s population is projected to fall from 127million to 87 million by 2060 at which more than 40% of the population will be older than 40. The population is already shrinking with the total down by one million between 2010 and 2015. Japan probably more than any other developed nation maintains a policy of anti-immigration. Net migration is just 0.56 people per 1000 of the population ranking close to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Mongolia.
