Elon Musk has said that Japan’s existence will disappear if the birth rate does not exceed the death rate.
Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, has been described by many as a ‘Twitter addict’. He often jokes on Twitter.
Musk, who recently announced his intention to buy Twitter, wrote in a Twitter message, “I am writing at the risk of repeating what everyone knows. That would be a great loss for the world. ”
The Reuters news agency reported that many people reacted angrily and sarcastically to his message.
However, the funny thing is that the victims of this anger and ridicule are not masks, the people have expressed their displeasure mainly for the sake of the Japanese government. They claim the government has failed to stem the tide of population growth.
In 2006, Japan’s population reached an all-time high. But since then, the country’s population has shrunk to 125 million last year due to low birth rates. The government has repeatedly warned and taken steps to address the problem, but to no avail.
However, despite declining population, Japan is still the 3rd largest economy in the world. Japan has established itself as an important business hub for various industries, including semiconductors, cars, and video games.
Tobias Harris, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, said: “What does it mean to tweet something like this?
“There is no danger of Japan disappearing, but far-reaching social deviations are a major concern as the population continues to decline,” he added.
Others point out that low birth rates are not the only problem in Japan. Many other countries, including Germany, have this problem. For some reason, Musk made the remarks aimed at Japan. Musk recently opened a new Tesla plant in Germany.
However, many Japanese said that such a situation is not very surprising. They sharply criticized the government and claimed that no initiative had been taken to address the problem. They cited the government’s failure to introduce more maternity homes to raise children and to make it easier for mothers to return to work after giving birth.
