Its baby boom population is of working age right now, but its current birthrate is below the replacement level — far lower than in the U.S.Which would be great news for the next 20 years, if only the baby boom population entering the workforce now had received an education that permitted them to enter the modern economy.

Its enormous natural bounty notwithstanding, it will always be hobbled by its intractable social problems, born of demographics.Hot streaks do tend to come to a screeching halt, but EM nations have a lot going for them. Taken collectively, they have young populations, huge pools of savings and reserves, export and commodity-based economies, and pent-up demand just waiting to be unleashed. In other words, they have a future.
