Example text

Although its continued economic growth is impressive, China faces major problems that will hinder its ability to replace the United States as the world’s hegemon. The first of these is a rapidly aging population beginning in 2020. Nearly 400 million Chinese will be over sixty‑five years old by 2020. This could be a source of unrest and economic stagnation. Younger generations will be pressed to care for the older population. There will be a great discrep‑ ancy between the numbers of young people and the elderly, and China lacks the pension and health care infrastructure characteristic of Western societies.

Reform their social welfare, education, and tax systems to encourage people to work longer hours and retire later. But, at this time, there is no indication that Europe will take these steps.
