224 | Dr. Jennifer Sciubba: How the Population Boom & Bust Is Reshaping the World

Episode Summary

For Day 19 of The Realignment's daily Ukraine and beyond coverage, Marshall spoke with Dr. Jennifer Sciubba, author of 8 Billion and Counting: How Sex, Death, and Migration Shape Our World. They start by discussing the over-hyped idea in the American foreign policy community that Russia's declining population and rising mortality rate signaled the decline of its foreign policy ambitions and then engage in a broader discussion on the implications of lower birthrates in wealthy, industrialized countries and why left and right approaches to push replacement-level family sizes have failed.
