Thanks @CratonCheers @Garpal Gumnut
His many other vids are much more in-depth paticularly regarding demographics and how that plays out; especially for Germany, Japan, Russia and China, as they are too top heavy with an ageing population and no replacements coming through the rank and file. Gen Z is just not reproducing in the numbers required.
He covers a lot of ground, there are many pieces to the puzzle of globalisation. He paints in brush strokes that may be broad and based on the available statistics.
Some may say he's seen to be spruiking the US of A but, America is blessed with a huge labour pool to the south (Mexico), a resource rich neighbour to the north (Canada), a topography that is favourable and favours a large population, now thanks to shale oil is now a nett exporter etc all coupled with a govt. that isn't hell bent on using it's younger population as cannon fodder.
I agree his POV isn't the end all to be all but of lot of what he puts forward resonants.
From a DYOR investment perspective, I personally like knowing where he's parking his money and from one of his latest vids, he's strong into "energy" commodities like copper and the big four food giants like ADM.
Peter, in his capacity as a geo-politics strategist, has advised the Australian govt. in the past so he does has creditibility. From that one short video, it is much condensed but IMHO, succint re. China.
PZ is becoming a rockstar of late.
A lot of punters and YouTubers quoting him and “Demographics “ has become a go to for content.
I’ve tried looking for the arguments against his big picture without much success but will keep looking. Of course a couple of butterflies could upset the narrative.
I have, however, found I sleep more soundly after watching one of his presentations, the future looks so bright, as payment to PZ for this service I have bought his latest book.
I’ll post once read- it may take a while though.
