My two cents have already been covered.

Economics is remarkable in showing us that seemingly plausible speculations can be completely wrong when it comes to reality. Nevertheless, I would suggest that having Social Security kick in at given “full retirement” age is problematic in terms of changing demographics. Speculatively speaking, perhaps “full retirement” for Social Security should be percentage based – only the oldest x% of the work force. This would eliminate much political theater in periodic fixes to Social Security.

Kudos @OneOfTheSheep for adding an interesting twist to the issue.

I do question the point about the young being ‘infrastructure intensive’ – all the roads, houses, airports, power stations and cables are already in place – cars and servers are comparatively cheap. If anything, a zombiefying economy should have a surplus. I believe the real issue is one of inability for the ‘haves’ being the so called 1% – the land owners to transfer wealth to the younger generation – this is why the jobs of the young do not pay enough to (say) buy a house when in the 1950’s, they did. It is a controversial idea, but I part of me believes the long term solution is to introduce a 90% estate duty – the duty must not go to the government but into the broader economy. This would allow the good of capitalism (innovation, individual contribution) to go on without its downside – inequality between the young and the old, the 1% and the 99% and so on.

In late Imperial Rome, population declined radically. Lots of reasons have been advanced- from lead poisoning to onerous taxes but a likely cause of modern declining birth rate is the cost and complexities of modern child rearing. In any case, the ramifications are huge.. fortunately by then I will be dead.

Continuous, strong stimulation may work on a healthy young person, to some extent, but it’s much less likely to achieve miraculous results on a middle aged or elderly person, while being more likely to create irreparable damage to them.
Ask your doctor about it…

Our societies are learning how to do what must be done with fewer and fewer people. It is for our economists to figure out how the END of most forms of “growth prosperity” can translate into less environmental damage and perhaps maintain (and eventually improve) the “standard of living” in modern economies.

Certainly in a world of SEVEN BILLION humans it is time for ALL nations to eliminate fiscal incentives for large families and encourage a better life for those already here. The challenge of today’s “Digital Revolution” is easily as significant as was those of the Industrial Revolution.

We live in interesting times!

Thought provocative, from another viewpoint, we can interpret fiscal, monetary, technological… and other forces as forces of liberation.

Natural answer for ongoing reinforcement of structural failures.
