Editorial Reviews

Demographic Winter DVD by Rick Stout A ground breaking film that will change the way you think about economics and children. This video draws upon voices from all around the world and experts from many different disciplines - demographers, economists, sociologists, psychologists, civic and religious leaders, parliamentarians and diplomats. Together, they reveal in chilling soberness the dangers facing society and the world's economies, dangers far more imminent than global warming and at least as severe. (2008, 54min.)

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly enlightening look at world population!!! January 8, 2009
DVD: Demographic Winter

The premise of this documentary is that population in the civilized world is in decline. Population is expanding because were getting older (not dying) not because of births. This of course is going to bite us on our rear end. Why? Here are some points the documentary to illustrate this:

1. Japans economy fell as their population aged. The older people retired and didn't spend as much. Consumer spending drives an economy.

2. Europe is having serious population depletion right now. There are countries giving out subsidies to encourage people to breed. It's a huge problem.

3. Russia's population is declining by 700,000 a year and they too are encouraging people to breed.

4. The least populated areas of the world are the ones that are some of the least environmentally friendly.

5. The world economy will be drastically impacted by western population decline. Where China and other countries will be impacted at first they will have the population to recover. We won't.

6. The baby boomers are going to retire soon. Then you will have more people collecting benefits like social security and medicare then supporting it (a reverse pyramid). This will crush our economy... So you can look forward to: 1. Increase of age limits to retire, 2. increase taxes on those still working, 3. a decrease in benefits...

7. One of the biggest problems is the destruction of the family. Our children are being raised in broken homes. I can't begin to do this part of the movie justice. You really have to see it to appreciate it. In the end this is about the world we are leaving our children. Many movements (environmental, exc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frightening but true July 31, 2009
I highly recommend this documentary. As the demographers interviewed mention, there is little quibble over the numbers. Current birth rates are below the replacement levels in 70 countries now. There is a great need for awareness of the truth on this issue. Countries like Russia and Latvia are facing extinction, and it is on the forefront of their political minds. However, in the US we are still blissfully unaware of our coming troubles. As Adam Smith said, population growth leads to economic prosperity. Population decline leads to depression.

As a side note, the demographers interviewed are not coming from a faith-based perspective in many cases. Several mentioned that they are members of secular progressive organizations or have a Darwin/Malthus based approach to understanding human behavior. This is why the fact that people are not reproducing is so surprising in light of the evolutionary theory that all life forms are driven to reproduce themselves to the limit of their resources.

The sequel to this documentary, Population Bomb, has also just been released. I hope Amazon carries it as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well received April 28, 2012
By AC
Verified Purchase
I looked forward to this video which supported my concerns for the ill process of calculations created around the 2050 population count, which is tainted by a lack of calculating declining demographics, which are occuring in almost every culture and nation. It is about time something was offered that covered the other side of the story. I would not have as much trouble with the videos they show in school that scare the kids into never wanting children if they turned around and showed this video helping kids understand what has begun to happen because people have stopped having kids, but that wouldn't fit the political agenda and it would derail too many indoctrinated belief systems so it will never happen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Movie April 4, 2011
By Carol M
This is an incredible movie that everyone in our country should watch, especially young people getting ready to start a family. This information is not generally presented in the mainstream media, but they are presenting hard numbers - not opinion. This is not a religious film, just facts, and ones we need to know.

5.0 out of 5 stars DeomgraphicWinter July 22, 2010
By Honesty
Everyone must agree that economics is related to population (demographics) and the ability of society to support its government and social programs.
Professors from University of Virginia, Michigan State, University of Chicago, Texas at Austin, and more should be heard and considered.
When Russia has to pay women $9,000 per baby, and pay 40% of their salary to stay home and take care of the child, plus $120 month - there has to be a problem.
"Demographic Winter" is well worth everyone's time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Inconvenient Truth December 26, 2009
By delta10
This is an outstanding DVD about the population decline of the world and it's consequences - current and future - stemming from the growing unwillingness of people to have children.
The film is chocked full of graphs, stats, and great quotes, and has a cool extra of being able to view one by one each graph shown in the film.
People have become increasingly selfish and are having less children, by choice, to have more time to indulge themselves in their self-centered pursuits. The media and entertainment industries glamorize the idea of putting off things like getting married and starting a family, which at one time would've been considered part of growing up. But the chickens may be coming home to roost sooner than we thought. As the baby boomers pass into retirement age, a shrinking young work force will not be able to support them, causing people strapped for money to have even less children, and so making the problem worse.
This story is one you'll never hear the media talk about, because unlike the myth of global warming, people returning to nuclear family structures and having more children does nothing to further their religion of humanism. After decades of hearing about the dangerous "population explosion" and "global crowding", finally another liberal myth is killed by facts and truth. They can bury global warming right next to them.
