Mish Moved to MishTalk.Com Click to Visit.

Reader Bran who lives in Spain sent some interesting charts of population, expected population growth, the world's largest cites, and what people do for a living. I don't have links for the charts, but most show the origin.

Seven Billion People


  • 4.30 Billion Work
  • 1.90 Billion too Young to Work
  • 0.43 Billion Unemployed
  • 0.58 Billion 65 or Older

Total about 7.2 Billion people

Cities With Projected 2030 Population of 10+ Million

Top 10 Mega-Cities by Population

Anyone have any concerns over these numbers in regards to jobs, food, housing, cost of education,  healthcare costs, or retirement?
