Present state of affairs
Many developed countries of the world are passing through a very harsh economic phase that doesn’t seem to coming to an end in the near future. For instance, the US has an alarming budget gap, while most of the countries from Europe have a growing population of the aged people, resulting to a diminishing workforce. Italy and Spain are perhaps the worst hit. The rate of unemployment in those countries has reached such level that at present they are experiencing a brain drain with a lot of their capable graduates going overseas in anticipation of getting well-to-do jobs.
Though local population of Canada and Australia is decreasing, these countries seem to be braving through the present economic circumstances. Let us make a comparative study of the two and thus get a better understanding of how the not so superior countries can put their act together.
Let’s scratch the surface and go deeper
The dilemma of the developed world, largely habituated by whites is that their citizens don’t favor the idea of having babies. It’s not difficult to guess the reasons. These people are more concerned about their careers than making babies and raising their families, which would certainly eat a lot of their time and demand lot of efforts on their part.
This has created a loophole in the economic cycle of these nations, as the population of the elderly keeps rising steadily, with insufficient people coming forward to substitute for the older ones. As a result, they are very likely to have problems pertaining to their social security systems, including pensions.
Canada And Australia
Countries like Australia and Canada have relaxed their policies to encourage gifted people with brilliant ideas to migrate to their countries to work or generate jobs . As long as you are talented, they don’t care for your cast or creed. Well, some may comment that these countries being among the most thinly populated ones can really afford doing that but they can’t deny the truth that gradually they are accomplishing growth of population.
At the same time, Italy and Spain and most other European countries continue having very strict norms for immigration, though not so strict as the US has. As a result, employers are left with no option but to employ locally available manpower and talent even if someone from another country is better qualified for doing the required job. Many consider that as an appropriate policy, but looking to the modern history it seems to have gone wrong.
Governments of many developed countries have tried hard to get to the bottom of this problem. Some have even gone to the extent of offering incentives and providing subsidies to working couples who decide to have babies. However, these offerings can’t sustain as having a baby is a matter of personal choice and not financial. The answer to unemployment lays in offering jobs to competent people with ability as the other solutions have proven to be ineffective.
