Comment: World Worker Shortage - A column in The Globe and Mail notes "The world is on the threshold of what might be called 'peak people.' The world's supply of working-age people will soon be shrinking, causing a shift from surplus to scarcity… Peak people will be an age when jobs compete for workers rather than vice versa. The cheapest labor will vanish… Peak people will also be an age when countries will be competing for immigrants rather than trying to limit them… And if their home countries are competing to keep them, then we'll have a harder time finding young people who want to come. It will require nimble and clever policies to prevent us from becoming old and lonely." The "immigration problem" that most countries will be screaming about in not so distant future will be the problem of having too little immigration and not enough workers despite trying everything to attract immigrants. We should be glad, proud and grateful that the US is a magnate for immigrants, instead of regarding it as a problem. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at
