A few tidbits..

1. places with older populations do not see sustained economic growth. Why? Fixed incomes and fewer/less varied purchases. 

2. Older folks are more conservative and more likely to vote. Why? They have spare time to dedicate to politics.

Same in Canada, our popluation is aging out too.  But, then again, according to population demographic stats all over the world (even Africa and Latin America) their populations are aging also!

As noted from the article you quoted, economic growth is closely tied with age and where people are in their lives. So if they are not raising young children, they don't need a bigger house or possibly even another car. And are likely buying less stuff also.

Most people waste too much money buying too much crap....but that's what keeps the wheels of our ever-increasing capitalist system growing! 

I don't know if you've considered it, but why are we still allowing the class of super-rich (who benefit the most from hyper-capitalism) to set the rules and try to force us all to follow the rules of demand-driven economics? Add in that most of the demand is artifically created, and it explains everything we need to know about why our planet earth today is turning into a toxic waste dump with ever-dwindling resources. 

We should be thankful that we have an aging population, and that there will be fewer people all over the world having large families and driving up the demand for more and more manufactured products.

1. Florida has an older population and we have the best economy in the country.  We have the fastest growing economy in  America. We have the most affluent MIDDLE CLASS. And our state budget is in surplus. Maybe it's because our superior schools are graduating very EDUCATED kids. There is no other state with HUGE retirement communities like The Villages or Sun City Center.

2. Younger people do not vote because they (a) don't give a shit about politics and (b) are too busy chasing college, jobs and sex to vote. The youth vote was NEVER a good demographic. Older people vote because they are the real TAXPAYERS and they have to foot the bill for all the crap the Democrats give us. Older people are also the best educated, especially the elderly in Florida.

You may not be old enough to remember a time when  MTV was actually a music channel, back in the early 80s. Back then the Democrats were actually STUPID enough to try to go after the youth vote and bought MTV time for a campaign called ROCK THE VOTE. It fell flat. Young people are too busy pretending they can be adults without any responsibility.
