    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total_fertility_rate

    tl;dr Total Fertility Rate (TFR) is the average number of children per woman over her lifetime. Somewhat complicated to evaluate and is based around a couple of assumptions, but that is statistics for you. UN calls a TFR of 2.1 the replacement level, where over time the population will hold stable without effects of migration, though child mortality rates will adjust this upwards for underdeveloped countries.

    Hasnt that been proven wrong in most countries by now? This was an argument in Sweden (and iirc Nordics in general) for quite some time but it was never really true.
    Sweden has been below 2.1 FTR (Summerad fruktsamhet) pretty much since the '70s.

    A single province in China just confirmed 17 dead and 444 cases which is more than the central government is admitting for the entire country.

    This is getting spicy.

    Same for Holland, before immigration we have been shrinking since the early 90s.

    This is true for almost literally every developed nation.

    Israel and South Africa are notable exceptions: but I suspect that when you burrow into the data I suspect you'll see the results of apartheid policies.

    Actually, in SA's case, the birth rate is falling, mostly because previously disadvantaged women are become educated and less willing to be baby machines.

    "We are on the verge of the greatest democratization of wealth
    Wealth doesn't have power if it's democratized, you goblin.

    Mr. Siegel is an intellectual heavyweight
    Translation: "He makes more money than you, therefore he's smarter than you." Plenty of intellectuals stood by and watched as the housing markets collapsed.
    the market is a powerful mechanism for driving bad and dishonest providers out of business
    This is a bald-faced lie. This only happens if there is appreciable competition and the government swings it's regulatory stick regularly. The market didn't put Moody's, S&P, Theranos, Turing Pharmaceuticals, or defense contractors out of business.

    That list can go on for hours. In russia if something does well it's basically guaranteed to be dodging tax and sabotaging the competition. Including the tax gatherers themselves.

    Putin is popular because he brought it back to "normal" levels of corruption
