The End of Nations At the End of the World 

The demographic pyramids below are from my new book, The End of the World is Just the Beginning: Mapping the Collapse of Civilization. I discuss global demographic trends, the impacts of societal aging and the future of, well, everything

What we have here are two population pyramids, telling two very different stories of ostensibly the same country. The data is arranged numerically by sex, with simple mortality causing the numbers to shape up like a pyramid. At least, the chart looks like a pyramid in societies with a high enough fertility rate to offset deaths due to old age. 

Take a look (and a read). Italy is most assuredly not alone in its rapid demographic decay.

Finally, a reminder. You can access all of the graphics from the book in full color (and zoomable size) on my website. Just click here to access the graphics from The End of the World is Just the Beginning

We will continue to post our analysis and updates on this and other topics related to the Ukraine War. This newsletter and its affiliated videologues are, and always will be, free. New subscribers can sign up here.
Finally, a reminder:
Russia’s strategic shift from thunder runs to a civilian obliteration has already forced ten million Ukrainians from their homes, with nearly four million now living in limbo in foreign lands. All proceeds from all formats of all of our previous books are being donated to the Afya Foundation, a charity which provides medical assistance to refugees from the Ukraine War.
