It's no secret that Japan's population is aging and can not replace itself. Since it is not a destination country for migrants, this is going to have serious economic ramifications as the percentage of the Japanese population over 60 is expected to rise above 40% over the course of this next generation. Given the harsh statements by the new Japanese finance minister, it's a huge political concern (although a difficult one mention in campaigns). Some have already questioned Japan's ability to survive this demographic implosion as adult diapers are now a bigger moneymaker in Japan than children's diapers.

Its clear that Japan is overpopulating. People are living long lives in a big country like Japan and people just keep reproducing. The Japense minister in my opion is very wrong here. A minister should never wish deaths upon his people.
