Increase In Older Population, Lower Birth Rates Threaten Cuba’s Economic, Political Future, New York Times Reports

New York Times: In Cuba, an Abundance of Love but a Lack of Babies
“…Experts predict that 50 years from now, Cuba’s population will have fallen by a third. … The demographic crisis is both an economic and a political one. The aging population will require a vast health care system, the likes of which the state cannot afford. And without a viable work force, the cycle of flight and wariness about Cuba’s future is even harder to break, despite the country’s halting steps to open itself up to the outside world…” (Ahmed/Cohen, 10/27).
