How Japan 🇯🇵 Can Reverse Their Population Decline (Without Going Broke)

Famous for its swordsmanship, anime, culture & unique food, Japan has distinguished itself on the world stage.

Unfortunately, like many nations, Japan 🇯🇵 is experiencing a population decline, albeit faster than many nations.

Japan has the fastest-aging population of any post-industrial nation on earth. Its birth rate — the average number of children a woman typically has — started to decline in the 1970s. The country’s current birth rate is 1.3, according to data from the World Bank, well below the “replacement level” of just over two children per woman generally considered necessary to keep a population steady.

A survey conducted by the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research in 2022 found that close to a fifth of men and about 15% of women in Japan expressed disinterest in marriage, the highest levels since 1982. Almost a third of men and a fifth of women in their fifties in Japan had never been married.

Japan’s government has already vowed to take action to reverse this declining trend, & numerous experts have already submitted proposals on potential solutions.

While yours truly is not an expert in Japanese culture, economics, or language, it would be a tragic loss for the world if Japan 🇯🇵 faded from the world stage.

So, without further ado, here is a potential solution on how Japan can resolve its population decline without breaking the bank (note: video is long, so feel free to skip around via the chapters).

The government of Japan 🇯🇵 would provide helpful incentives to the population to encourage couples to not only get married but have multiple children as well.

How Would Japan 🇯🇵 Pay For These Weekly Benefits‽

Japan 🇯🇵 could help offset the cost of all of these weekly benefits by offering a Cultural Visa (the price would be up to Japan 🇯🇵), obtaining fees from Japanese citizens desiring to teach foreigners (citizens can use the additional job as a way to earn extra income) & by taxing Akiya or abandoned houses purchased by foreigners.
