America's Population Problem

 The United States of America is ageing rapidly, and the workforce is not growing.

20.5% of the U.S. population would be 65 or older by 2030, compared with about 16.8% at the start of this decade. 

And the labor force participation rate, which at 61.7% is now roughly where it was in the 1970s.
