The touchstone of every elaboration on Europe's future is globalisation and how to respond. Obviously globalisation and all it comes along with it matters. And by and large Europeans are not adapting very well. Yet the biggest problem facing their continent (and their welfare states) is not the result of a new twist in the new emerging playing field. It would exist even if Europeans had the world stage to themselves. The problem is demography, the fact that the old continent is growing even older.

According to new research conducted by the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) the composition of Europe’s demographic will undergo dramatic changes. By 2025, one in five Europeans will be more than 65 years old, up from 16 percent in 2002. This will result in a big gap between an increasing number of retired citizens and a decreasing number of working citizen. Retired citizen tend to consume their savings as working citizen create most of those savings. Therefore, the absolute level of savings will plunge across most of Europe. That is a threat to Europe’s high living standards and economic well-being.

Description:

The touchstone of every elaboration on Europe's future is globalisation and how to respond. Obviously globalisation and all it comes along with it matters. And by and large Europeans are not adapting very well. Yet the biggest problem facing their continent (and their welfare states) is not the result of a new twist in the new emerging playing field. It would exist even if Europeans had the world stage to themselves. The problem is demography, the fact that the old continent is growing even older. (Source: [1] Economist)

According to new research conducted by the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) the composition of Europe’s demographic will undergo dramatic changes. By 2025, one in five Europeans will be more than 65 years old, up from 16 percent in 2002. This will result in a big gap between an increasing number of retired citizens and a decreasing number of working citizen. Retired citizen tend to consume their savings as working citizen create most of those savings. Therefore, the absolute level of savings will plunge across most of Europe. That is a threat to Europe’s high living standards and economic well-being.
