    Interesting, but the economic analysis is a very antiquated set of thinking. For example, it cites "a smaller population of working age" without massive immigration, as if this is bad. It is not GDP which counts; it is the individual wealth of persons and families which is important. You cannot increase the wealth of a nation by filling it with people of lower skills, lower education, many of them old and or non-working, and many of them opposed to assimilating into the national culture.

    This is not the Agricultural Era, nor the Industrial Revolution. The native populations of the West should be thinking about working longer, and changing careers, because their life expectancy has increased since 1900. Developed nations should focus on high skill jobs for those in their peak earning years, learning jobs for the young, and tapering down jobs for the older workers. That means lower taxes and smaller government.

    This analysis is also static in assuming that these fewer workers cannot pay for the huge welfare programs. Well, the low-skilled immigrants surely cannot pay the pensions of skilled Brits. And the majority of these new immigrants go directly onto the dole. They are dead weight.

    Western nations need to be dismantling their antiquated state pensions and healthcare systems. Putting that money into private pensions and health savings accounts that actually belong to the individuals and can be passed on to their heirs is the way to increase their wealth and the wealth of the nation.

    Just saw a headline on the news "George Sores warns about Brexit". Isn't this the guy the British took in after WW 2 and gave him a life again, then he grew up and tried to break the Bank of England?

    This is the fellow who bet millions he did not have on a short position, betting that the pound would be devalued over the weekend, and made over 100 to 1 on it. Many thought it smelled of an inside trade. So he makes more money by shorting currencies, then talking them down, using the profits to finance all sorts of tax-exempt foundations who promote cultural disintegration. He finances disinformation web sites posing as journalism, to smear opposition to his pet politicians. At least he is open and honest about his desire to destroy Europe in his 1987 autobiography.
