      @Michael Uttley Most of our population growth comes from developing countries. A lot of first-world countries are actually having more deaths than births, and a decreasing population. There’s less incentive to have children in a wealthier country.

      @Alan W 🌈 Define older people. Boomers and greatest gen generally care for things. Whoever is between boomers and gen x grew up with all the mid-century disposable new fangled stuff that was designed to be thrown away. I’m gen x and was raised to have only what I needed and treat it like a lifelong possession. A lot of millennial to gen z’s I know in liberal NM definitely thrift but they also buy cheap at the dollar store and still throw things away. Most if not all of the millennials to gen z’s I knew in conservative Iowa (and it was a lot) were 100% into fast fashion, trendy cheap furniture etc and thought nothing of temporary everything. People there wasted more paper than anyone I’ve ever been around. It’s really not a generational thing - it’s a learned value.

      The only people I know who waste and throw things away are older people. Everyone in my generation (my friends anyway) all reuse things and care for things. I often hand wash my clothes because I find washing machines put pressure on the seams and the clothing eventually rips, but hand washing makes clothes last for ages. My shower water is reused on my tomato plants. I buy food without plastic on it, like fresh cabbage and other vegetables with no packaging. I try to talk to Boomers about recycling and reusing things, but they never listen - they just say they don't care because they'll be dead soon anyway.

      @Floxy Dorathy Starting out with a with a professional that knows the ropes of the choppy but profitable market is the best way to achieve getting a well structured portfolio. That’s why I have been working with ‘ CASEY ALLEN GRAY ’ and that doesn’t make me daft because in financial dealings one have to be prudent. Most traders enter exit with a quick 10% profit which is not bad in a general opinion but why not aim higher, it doesn’t necessarily mean to be greedy.

    I liked the rate of innovation part. Even if innovation flourishes, what if the things worth innovating upon are just a waste of a perfectly good mind. If advertising and such is 10x easier than particle physics and can get you 100x more rich and famous than who would be a particle physicist? One with a bunch of college debt and a relatively average salary whose time and energy likely will be focused on the corporations goals rather than scientific breakthroughs or personal intrigue. If he/she wants a grant they will likely have to prove that it will be profitable

    The average person has never been so poor. Millions of families are struggling financially as living expenses hit the highest levels in more than four decades. Over 60% of our country lives paycheck to paycheck and about 40% earns poverty wages. Even after working all their lives, more than a quarter of older people have no savings and many believe they will never be able to retire in dignity, while around 55% of elderly people try to survive on an income of less than €25,000 a year. My primary concern is how to grow my reserve of €300k which has been sitting duck since forever with zero to no gains.

      @Sausage N Bellenz Not to mention your expected years of life to come amounts to several decades. Just go through your own family history, and you will likely, like me, find that what killed my family members just a few decades ago, is now mostly curable or maneageable medical conditions. In fact I've found out, I was named for a young boy in the 1940's, who really never should have died, by today's standards. His children ought to celebrate Christmas with me this year, and many more years to come. Sadly, their company, lives and ideas, are pure phantoms. Though I will carry his name proudly. and think about what joke and smile he may had served me this christmas.
      All doomsday economists have so far been wrong, famously beginning with Malthus - or rather actually not! The points he made, were actually the right ones, and consequentally, were acted on, and the catastrophe he pointed at, was avoided. Now that has to be a god job done as an economist!

    Having all runs of the simulation ending with a similiar result, having a decline starting around 2040 sounds more like an error in the simulation to me, rather than a definitive point of collapse...
    If I write a program and it starts spitting out the same result each run, in spite of me feeding different parameters to it, I go back and look for an mistake I made along the way, or if I just forgot to get rid off a flag I had for testing reasons.
    Either that, or the simulation wasn't as complete as these people imagined.
    This sounds like Nostradamus with transistor.

    I remember reading about this study as a kid in the 1980s and worrying. Thankfully, I think the predicted collapse of civilization is a bit pessimistic, based on a 1970s outlook.
    Parts of the 'Business as usual' model are already off - eg, pollution hasn't increased exponentially since 1972. We're not running out of resources. And we're not suffering severe food shortages (as a result of population growth, at least).

      @Ncik Carrico Nope. Not enough fossil energy left to rebuild everything in electric version, plus we've been destroying too much of the environment through pesticides and fertilizers and nobody is in any rush to stop that. Insects are dying out, and with them our agriculture too. Also not a "renewables"/electricity problem. There are deep ugly problems we've created through fossil-powered industry, mass use of personal cars and intensive farming, and not enough of them are being fixed fast enough to avoid social collapse and drastic population reduction through mass famine.
      We should've started fixing things decades ago. Now it's about how many we can save as things inevitably come crashing down.

    As someone who is an MCU fan and have worked on system dynamics, the simple explaination is that MIT is doing what Dr strange did in infinity wars. He looked at all the futures to understand what he needed to do at that point in time. MIT too look through millions of futures to find out what decisions today will lead us down which future.
    The point of the exercise is not to tell what the future will be But the point is to be able to forecast what the long term impact of what we do today will be in the future.

    I personally think that the collapse is more probable because we are more of a reactive society that waits till the last second to do something rather than being proactive. Political corruption and corporate won’t be going away and people are resistant to change, America is very guilty of that. The people who could have the power to make major decisions for the better aren’t really doing much and I feel as though we aren’t changing fast enough.

      This is the right answer.

Simply put, greed will be our undoing. Always has, always will.

    • Peter Wyatt
      Peter Wyatt 4 months ago +1

      But isn't the problem with all levels of activism is that it takes on too much of an approach to social settings? As in, it'll perceive what has been wrong with our world, though when it comes to actually doing something about something, one forgets about the world, pretends it never exists, and focuses on the individual, not society.
      Activists want to tackle all the problems, in relation to their focus on the world, though that leaves the individual, who has become affected by worldly problems, to be neglected.
      In essence, activists are the same as you, Darkmatter, who will only look to the rich and powerful, wondering why they've not done anything to "change" something.
      Well, why not you? Is money both the sickness and the cure? Or is there something else to it? Maybe it's that you, among countless other people, don't seem to care enough to save an individual, because these sorts are too afraid to "get involved". You'd rather mind your own business, and therefore, be negligent.

      You don't need to understand the future's technology. You use trends to extrapolate how a certain variable will change over time, and how it impacts other dependent variables. And you run different scenarios based on different assumed relations - like the impact of technology on production and resources consumption. The actual implementation of the science is immaterial, unless a specific technology brings a huge upturn not within the extrapolation (say - eternal fusion fixing all our energy needs cleanly).
      The fact that the real world trend so far is consistent with the worst scenario is telling.

    Every time I hear about environmental damage being considered an externality in a model it makes me feel kinda sick. Very obviously it's not an externality and any model that continues in this ancient viewpoint is inaccurate to the point of idiocy no matter how short term it's modelling. Short term thinking is the whole problem that needs addressed and the focus of quarterly profits is the enemy of long term existence both for companies and for the Human Race.

      @Keith It's correlated, but not solely caused. In the developed world where children are not allowed to be put to work from a young age, children are a financial drain with little to no guaranteed financial payback. Also, any given child has a high likelihood of surviving to adulthood. Therefor, fewer children makes sense. Add contraception and knowing how to use it, and that becomes a reality. In third world countries they don't have contraceptives or generally know how to use them, they need to produce a lot of children to compensate for how many will die from starvation and disease, and they can put the kids to work so the survivors aren't as much of a drain on the family. Maybe some women in the developed world truly want to have careers, but in reality even those who'd rather be stay at home moms have trouble managing it in most cases because maintaining a family on a single income is very difficult now, vastly harder than it was in previous decades. It's simply harder to raise a family now.

    It is little bit hard to tell from the graph but it looks like we are still pre-decline on the business as usual 2 scenario. Output is still growing. Pollution is in the process of being prioritized. Population growth is still positive overall. There has been no decline in food. And economically, resource depletion is impossible. There are always alternatives. Our real problem is not adjusting away from harmful resources fast enough. ie: informal cobalt mining. Matching a scenario on the upside does not mean the end is nigh. Show me a scenario that accurately predicts any decline and I'll be right there with you.

      @geno mir Well yes, this would be a nice addition to anti-capitalist theory, I do appreciate the concept of human labor as a system of chemical and electrical energy consumption and output, but to put this in layman’s terms, the more people we have, the more we can build for consumption and improve our quality of life, however the more energy people consume is not a positive because super obese people would find it harder to labor, so there’s that

    • geno mir
      geno mir Year ago

      @Jose Rodriguez the social aspect of labor is only possible because labor itself, if there was no labor there wouldn't be any social aspect of it. ANd since labor is a function of energy therefore the social aspects of it is also a function of energy. to cut the discussion short, everything needs energy. the very essense of our universe is energy appropriation/consumption to fight off enthropy. the thing you reffer as social aspects (perhaps more appropriate term is sociocultural dynamics of labor) of labor is a function of the total net possitive energy delivered by the total labor - expressed by total energy consumption and energy consumption per capita. THe higher the energy consumption (both total and per capita) the higher the 'wealth' and the standard of living.

      It's a good argument but he didn't account for the power aspect.

Moreover, there's no reason to think that civilization could ever be rebuilt after the depletion of fossil fuels and metal mines, even if several centuries later there are again plenty of smart people around.

Gentlemen like you are saying to smart men and women (whatever their race is): "If you don't want to, don't have children", and what you don't understand is that without certain "critical mass" of these people in the next generations the whole modern civilization ends (electricity, modern agriculture, airplanes, Internet etc), which in turn will entail if not total extinction, but serious and sudden depopulation of the whole humanity. People who in their ignorance claim that everyone can be turned into a next Nikola Tesla, are de facto promoting collapse of technological society with all its horrible consequences, so these people shouldn't be taken seriously on ethical matters

    MIT produces great minds. Boston Consulting Group (they are massive) recruits these great minds then gives them instructions when these great minds are placed in companies BCG wishes to fail and profit off of. They use the legitimacy of MIT graduates to enforce and embolden their suggestions to companies. Many of these companies end up bankrupt and delisted on the stock market, only to have their IP's scooped up and repurposed. MIT likely knows this, though they can't stop their graduates from taking lucrative positions. Most of these graduates don't even realize what they are a part of till it's too late, if ever. So MIT concluding that the fall of society is in 2040 is something I'm paying attention to, because willingly or not, they've greatly contributed to that downfall.

    So, a little extra bit for people who are curious : systems dynamics models are a bit different than the modern machine learning systems we generally picture today. they do not have the ability to be trained and learn, instead they are hand built, usually using multiple theories that are then chained together into bigger 'systems'. The 'historical data' bit is for hand validation, you run known datasets through it and see how well your theory does, then you have to hand make adjustments. It is still pretty heavily used today since it is much more explainable than ML, but requires a lot more up front work and is not as useful for things like recommendation systems (the core of search, advertising, and product/media browsing) so it gets a lot less attention.

      @Lone Starr "what you argue about exhausts it's effect in the third decimal place." not true at all. In many cases, changes in model can have order of magnitude effect on outcome. Especially if you also need to add additional data to historical dataset to incorporate things that happened after the prior iteration was run.

      @Been Saiyan what I meant by curve fitting is over optimising. To put it in layman's terms ML can sometimes get tunnel vision and put together a perfect equation based on historical data, and get some ridiculous correlations. Fun fact: The import of Lemons from Mexico to the US is has a 0.97 negative correlation with road traffic deaths in the US. An ML model would take this assumption seriously.
      The ML model finding these strange connections is why it's such a great tool. But you always need a human to filter out the obvious mistakes ML makes.

      I agree to most parts, but I’d argue that dynamic models need much less data. And the applicability for well known physics is unparalleled. You can optimize the grid of northeast Europe using ML, but first you need to get the power plant to work using dynamic models and some conventional control. Once everything runs and generates data you get your ML and do some predictive maintenance or large scale optimization.

    Keep in mind these are the same people that said our society would collapse in 2020 too yet here we are almost 3 years later. Fact is nobody knows when our society will fail there is no way to measure it.

    Best day of my life was when I stopped spending borrowed money and only what I earn from my investment... Also Destroyed my financial credit score so can't borrow money.. it's definitely a bad addiction.. kids need to learn this quickly.. Investing your money is misunderstood by many as a "risky way to grow your wealth!" When in reality it is actually a necessary act to fight inflation and get a plethora of wealth. Have my net worth by $1M in the last 4 years.

      @Blayson Quinn There are plenty of ways to make a kill right now, but trades this large and nearly flawless can only be done by real-time experts with ISDA agreement. An ISDA agreement; allows investors to sit at the "big boy table" and make high-level transactions inaccessible to amateurs.

I just want to take my daughter to Disney land like my grandmother did for my dad and which he was unable to do for me, but we can't even afford and apartment.

    So I do have to say you are correct that there are less wars now then in the past. But there are more skirmishes and battles currently going on then there has ever been. In this modern age declarations of war is not needed for most combat situations. But the amount of people dying to combat is actually higher in the 21st century then the 20th if you exclude the two outliers of WW1 and WW2. If included it's near similar. I also think we have a higher murder rate today globally per captia then we did 200 years ago.
