Dear Editor,
I would like to thank Gary Endelman, Esq. for his latest column (Raise The Cap: Why America Needs More Essential Workers) and and for pointing out his previous articles that raised the US's aging population as a factor requiring continued immigration. (See: Gary Endelman Responds) I hope that his response was not made from the impression that my previous Letter to the Editor was made as a flame. To the contrary, it was a fan's request - but a fan who was on the road during the release of his previous articles! (-;

As a warning on the consequences of not having replacement immigration, Japan is aging rapidly because near-zero intake is not moderating their aging. It has been projected actuarially that Japan will see a shrinking population in just a few years. Their present population plateau is preventing growth as Japan enters a tenth year of recession. An article from the New York Times (registration required) a year back covers some of these issues, "Empty Islands are signs Japan's Sun Might Dim." With its large baby boom demographic bulge more than Japan's, the US would be a much older and less economically vibrant nation without reinforcement of its ranks.

Thanks again to Mr. Endelman for raising key issues.


Gary L. Dare
