From This Day of Lagos:

Report: Nigeria’s Rising Population a Ticking Time Bomb
May 2, 2019 5:36 am0

Obinna Chima

The failure by policymakers in Nigeria to match the rising rate of reproduction with a corresponding level of productivity in the country, “has set the stage for a ticking time bomb,” a report has warned.

Lagos-based investment and financial advisory company, the Financial Derivatives Company Limited (FDC), stated this in its latest bi-monthly economic update obtained yesterday.

While Nigeria recorded Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth of 1.93 per cent in 2018, the country’s population growth rate is currently at about three per cent.

In fact, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) on Monday stated that Nigeria’s population currently stands at an all-time high of 201 million, representing an increase of 5.1 million from the 195.9 million it said the country had in October last year.

The UNFPA in its 2019 State of the World Population report published on its website, had said the country’s annual growth rate has been at an average of 2.6 per cent from 2010 to 2019. …

“According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), Nigeria’s population is set to more than double by 2050 to reach 400 million and overtake the United States as the third most populated country in the world.

… “Nigeria was recently named the poverty capital of the world – overtaking much larger India, projected to rise sharply as the population boom continues without matching economic growth,” it added. …

The latest data from the National Bureau of Statistics also showed the unemployment rate has more than doubled since the end of 2015.

It currently stands at 23.1 per cent compared to 10 cent at the end of 2015. This, the report noted was likely to worsen in the years to come as population growth currently exceeds GDP growth.

“This implies that there are more people being born, and in turn, more people joining the labour force than there are jobs being created,” it stated.

Continuing, the report pointed out that even the highly educated and skilled Nigerians are not left out of the scramble, “to escape the current economic uncertainty for a better life overseas.” “Canada is the new destination of choice due to its liberal immigration policies.”

“Faced with dire employment prospects, Nigerians are fleeing. Many Nigerians have left and are still fleeing the country in search of proverbial greener pastures.”

    As if jobs were “created” independently of the population. Are there job creation factories somehwere that are underutilized. No, the “jobs” (really, sources of income) should grow with the population. But there are other limits, resource-wise. And maybe automation will kill off the simple jobs, too. Then new kinds of jobs will be created – like piracy or exploiting extraterrestrials.

    If you want to see the future of the planet look at Nigeria.

    There is a beautiful capital city of Abuja (newly built in the 1980s) with great professional jobs and growing like crazy.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abuja

    The rest of the country is a disaster with broken infrastructure, gangs, rebels, unreliable electricity, bad roads, everyone hiding any wealth so it won't be stolen.

    Of course the government does not create anything--it is just a parasite slowly strangling its host.

    The politicians give great speeches, though.

    The entire continent of Africa will collapse. This includes S. Africa as well. Africa will take much of the world with it including Europe. This is just the beginning. The population, the political insanity of correctness and the coming ecological disaster as well as warring factions that will cross borders will lead to collapse.

    And governments and intelligence agencies know this and have for a long time. This is one of the reasons that the US won't give up their bases all over the globe including bio labs. There is no way out.

    Actually, if Nigeria will experience a Malthusian catastrophe as a result of its chronic overpopulation, then you could potentially begin seeing eugenic fertility in Nigeria and a "race to the top." After all, in times of crisis, it's a really good idea to bet on the smarter members of society.

  4. I see nothing wrong with more People of Color being born as it sets off a positive chain reaction.

    There will be excess population in the country of origin

    The excess must move to racist white countries

    Sadly you are not far off the mark.

    Many years ago I was listening to NPR with an “immigration rights activist” as the guest.

    The interviewer brought up the point that some of the opposition to mass immigration was population fears.

    The “activist” said that instead of simply cutting out immigration, Americans should simply have fewer babies. She said that way it wasn’t putting the entire burden on the immigrants.

    And the reporter acted as if this woman had said something reasonable.

    Jesus F***ing Christ on a pogo stick! The activist was essentially advocating genocide and NPR thought it reasonable.

    And this was when old time low-immigration liberals like Gene McCarthy and Gaylord Nelson were still alive.

    Back in the early days of the 1st Clinton term a Brookings Institute/Council on Foreign Relations/Former Ambassador to Tanzania pointed out that Tanzania, all by itself, could feed all of Africa. The famines going on at the time were all induced by political problems. Even today Tanzania has only a third of its arable acres in production. You have overestimated the resource constraints on population growth.

    The African population is expanding rapidly. We need the U.N. and US/Euro libtards to get busy and go educate African women about reproductive options.

    Thamesmead was the largest council estate, (housing project), ever attempted in Britain. It had a long gestation built from the mid 1960s to the late 1970s by both the old LCC and the GLC.
    A vast project involving landscaping and its own dedicated pre stressed concrete beam/panel factories. Such as we will never see the likes of again - virtually no new council estates were built since 1980.

    It was built specifically to give the *ethnically British* dwellers of over crowded sub standard slums a decent standard of housing. Doubtless it cost the ratepayers of London, rich, poor, corporate or otherwise a small fortune to build.

    Forty years after the fact, the majority of its residents are black Africans.

    Surely, there's a moral there somewhere.

  20. OT again. Racist pseudoscience from the Guardian.

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/may/02/pregnant-black-racial-disparities-maternal-health

    There’s a new scientific concept here that sounds more like the poor woman’s the victim of The Evil Eye:

    Jennie Joseph, a midwife in Florida who is often cited for her pioneering work in this area, refers to the concept, in the arena of maternal health, as materno-toxicity. Joseph told me that materno-toxic zones describe the conditions that prevent a mother-baby pair from thriving. “For example, if you are in the middle of the hospital, like Serena Williams [who almost died after giving birth by C-section due to a blood clot in her lung and had to advocate on her own behalf to get the care she needed], you are now in a materno-toxic zone because the people around you perceive, respond and react to you in a way that puts your life in jeopardy. It doesn’t matter where you are – the materno-toxicity is created around you, perhaps because of your color, your race, your socioeconomic status, your ethnicity, etc.”

  24. The USA, too, is seeing less widespread prosperity and lower productivity as its population grows.

    1965 — 194 million

    2019 — 325 million

    Although economists count womb productivity as part of their definition of productivity on the premise that babies that cost taxpayers money for 18 years will someday work, far greater components of productivity are a real market for a country’s products and the incentive to work.

    The post-WWII US had a great, built-in, industrious market that could afford its products in war-ravaged Europe until European countries rebuilt their manufacturing base.

    China now has the great US (& European) markets that were handed to them on a silver platter, along with millions of jobs in US-owned companies, by profiteering, globalist, neoliberal elites. The Chinese didn’t even have to fight a war to get it.

    Maybe, you could attribute that to the prolific baby-making productivity of earlier generations of Chinese. They have reached a population of over 1 billion, albeit China instituted a one-child policy to deal with the un-productive results of overpopulation.

    Their one-child policy was instituted concurrent with their economic rise.

    [MORE]

    And their real secret was the big-spending consumer markets in the US & Europe, plus infrastructure stimulus projects on steroids to keep their excess men employed.

    Not that all of this production of nonessential goods by low-cost Chinese workers has lowered skyrocketing prices on all major household expenses to unaffordable levels for Americans who’ve seen 40 years of falling wages, but photos of Chinese factories often feature nothing but a sea of low-paid teenaged girls.

    The USA constitutes 18% of their exports. European exports are a big chunk, but the Chinese also have a big internal market to sell into due to the copious womb-productive sex of previous generations. Those feminist career girls in factories probably aren’t pumping out as many kids as the moms of yesteryear who could have one job only: raising their own kids.

    Other than for American farmers, China’s massive population does not provide a good consumer market for American companies, especially for American exporters employing American citizens rather than the Chinese, since China is all about China.

    They use their prolific womb productivity—their billion mouthes to feed—as an excuse for putting old-number-one first, like so many welfare-fed womb producers do in America’s cronyist, womb-centric, low-wage, service-sector, office-job universe. It features a very un-diverse sea of moms with unearned income from spouses, child support or welfare and child tax credits, working for rock-bottom wages since unearned income covers their major bills.

    The Japanese are more give-and-take, putting factories in the USA, and buying more from the USA, possibly due to the less arrogant ways of people with lower population numbers.

    India is also not a great consumer market for the USA despite its massive population, and this is due to the mass poverty that exists there despite all of that womb productivity and a talented, educated class at the top. India’s huge population, in and of itself, has not aided work productivity.

    The USA hit its peak of widespread middle-class prosperity around 1965, when the population was much smaller, and most moms still worked only in the home. How could the USA be so productive without the cronyist, mom-dominated jobs?

    One reason is that breadwinners of all types had the economic incentive to work hard, productively, whereas now jobs are so diluted in quality and pay due to womb-productivity-related economic disincentives and social factors that it’s not even close to worth the effort.

    Single, childless citizens over 40 and young, single citizens who have not yet popped out kids are incentivized to work hard for this reason: making sure that single moms and legal / illegal immigrants can have independent households financed by Uncle Sam, with everything from free food, to reduced-cost rent, to up to $6,431 in refundable child tax credit cash and monthly cash from Uncle Sammy that also increases per kid produced, while the non womb producers live under momma’s thumb in her basement.

    The incentive for single moms and legal / illegal immigrants in single-breadwinner households to work part time—and not very hard for low wages—is the low earned-income limits for the many pay-per-birth welfare programs of the neoliberal era. Néolibéral welfare programs require recipients to show proof of 20 hours of work per week.

    It doesn’t have to be continuous work. And it is not since “welfare reform” facilitates the part-time / gig / churn-job economy, providing employers with a labor pool that is incentivized to work for less, part time. Womb producers go in and out of part-time jobs, and when temp job income goes over the earned-income limits, they skip the welfare during those months.

    Low-paid, prime-aged, single non womb producers who are welfare-ineligible, and single people with kids over 18 also with no access to unearned income from government, are often disincentivized unless they are in a handful of market-rewarded fields.

    After going through the hard-work and every-month-quota-meeting cycle many times, finding out that it yields less economically than the combo of out-of-wedlock womb-productive sex and slacker part-time work, many people with nothing but earned income bypass the futile combo of hard work, all day / everyday work attendance and meeting quotas every month if they can.

    It does not even result in pay high enough, and steady enough, to finance a one-room apartment in a safe neighborhood, much less anything else. Many Americans (95 million between 16 and 65) have given up being the chump or the “work horse,” as one frequently absentee crony-parent manager put it, as she churned & burned one of the handful of people who kept her bonus numbers up, helping her to fund her copious family vacation schedule.

    Churn new hard workers, while keeping the old ones who do not meet quotas, but who do participate in the crony-parent absenteeism collusion. It is “productivity” in the womb-centric era of peak feminism until it isn’t.

    Government-paid sex and reproduction, plus part-time work that keeps the womb producers under the earned-income limits for welfare pays far more for the bottom 80% of single-breadwinner womb producers. And churning hard workers while taking one morning, afternoon and week off (for kids) after another pays far more for the corrupt top 20% of needs-the-job, above-firing womb producers.

    Then there’s all of those other groups driving down wages and reducing job quality (hours) for those living on earned-only income by their ability to accept low pay: the retired, part-time workers with SSA covering their rent; the married mommies in all-mom offices, with their big spousal income and low wages bumped up by non-refundable child tax credits and libertine absenteeism privileges from crony-parent managers; the college kids with parent-paid rent, hired in all-youth workplaces as part-time backups so that the owner has constant replacements when young workers quit; and now disabled people with SSI checks, forced to work a few hours a week for their free healthcare and counted as “employed” like the rest of the part-time / gig workers.

    Why should employers have any pressure to hire full-time workers, with earned-only income to cover all household bills, at wages sufficient to cover rent that has doubled in many high-wage cities and is unaffordable for most non-welfare-eligible, non-womb-productive, single earners in all low-wage cities and low-wage towns?

    When they do hire for full-time jobs at rent-covering wages, the jobs are mostly allocated through the crony-parent job network—wherein parents-in-charge hire fellow parents, watching each other’s backs while taking tons of time off throughout the year beyond their PTO and pregnancy leave.

    This corrupt cronyism concentrates the wealth and benefits from salaried, non-job-creating positions under fewer roofs, halving the size of the college-educated middle class in the service of furthering the personal lives of the crony parents, not in the service of productivity.

    It is all about the womb productivity, even when a few, young non parents are hired. Managers say things like this: So in so’s recent-college-grad kid (often one of their friends’ kids) is about to get married and have kids. So, because she will be absent from work for long periods during the baby-producing process, she “needs the job.” She also “needs it” since her husband, too, has a high-paying job, and they’re about to buy a $300k condo.

    Womb-productivity-based cronyism is so baked into the rigged system that they do not even try to disguise it at this juncture in “feminism’s” evolution. When they do, it is only to add fathers to the list of above-firing, absenteeism-privileged cronies.

    This, of course, is a great way to enhance productivity in all professions since the work productivity—and not the womb productivity—is the focus in hiring and retention.

    Carry on, Crony Nation. Keep producing from the womb.

    Contrary to elite rhetoric about declining Western populations, Uncle Sam’s Neoliberal 25-Year Paid Womb-Productive Sex Plan has led to much higher womb production, with the Xer generation expanding only to 48 million and the underemployed Millennial generation sitting at a whopping 76 million.

    Many of the Xers are now underemployed, too, and the white ones are dying off in middle age at a much higher rate than earlier generations of old-fashioned fuddy duddies, with their stay-at-home moms instead of low-wage NannyCam-surveilled babysitters, their much bigger middle class, their paid-off modest houses at retirement and their lack of daycare-raised mass shooters.

    But in April 1945, the farm was directly in the path of the advancing Red Army, which was on a collision course with remaining brigades of the SS, an elite and fanatical Nazi unit. A German prisoner of war told 2nd Cavalry’s Col. Charles Reed about the horses, who some caretakers were worried the hungry and tired Soviet troops might kill for food.

Joseph told me that materno-toxic zones describe the conditions that prevent a mother-baby pair from thriving. “For example, if you are in the middle of the hospital, like Serena Williams [who almost died after giving birth by C-section due to a blood clot in her lung and had to advocate on her own behalf to get the care she needed], you are now in a materno-toxic zone because the people around you perceive, respond and react to you in a way that puts your life in jeopardy.

  75. OT, but what kind of name is Buttigieg? Where’s it from? Ah, Malta.

    There were no Buttigieg births in England and Wales between 1837 and 1910, only 6 up to 1920, but 8 just in 1984, the last easily available year.

    The reason I ask is that one Alex Buttigieg is in the news for being attacked with a bottle in a London hotel corridor by his naked girlfriend. Unfortunately the police didn’t make the video available to the media. The girl was found guilty, but as usual in the UK, not jailed.

    It was built specifically to give the *ethnically British* dwellers of over crowded sub standard slums a decent standard of housing. Doubtless it cost the ratepayers of London, rich, poor, corporate or otherwise a small fortune to build.

    Forty years after the fact, the majority of its residents are black Africans.

    Surely, there's a moral there somewhere.

    Replies: @Anonymous, @bomag

    By definition, a resident of ‘subsidized housing’ is a tax liability.

    The fact that a majority of the Thamesmead – Europe’s biggest housing project – population are black Africans, once again illustrates the obvious absurdity of uncontrolled third world immigration.

  81. Jobs. Of course jobs. Sad, but when each of my children were born they were handed a knapsack filled with a life time of good health certificate, a HS dipoloma, admission to the college of their choice with guaranteed graduation, a Masters Degree and a life time career. Doesn’t that happen in Nigeria? Need to send them knapsacks like my kids got but fill them with contraceptives.

  82. Obviously what Nigeria really needs to boost its economic growth rate is more immigration. That’s the solution to all economic problems, as you know. Unfortunately the far left is now seriously pushing *emigration* from Nigeria and robbing hardy oppressed Africans of their fair share of the wealth. It’s a shame that privileged whites keep suckling up all the immigration and thus economic growth for themselves.

    The problem, as the article shows is how effective the binary attitude of whites have infected the thinking about problems and solutions here.

    Rather than think about how does, say Indonesia, manage better outcomes than Nigeria with a similar population, while, say Malawi, does worse than both despite a smaller population, they choose to masturbate over numbers because of the influence of western anxiety and politics. I admit, the low-quality thinking can be rather embarrassing.

    Many of my fellow countrymen do not see beyond America and Europe. How does China manage better outcomes than India? How does France do better than Germany or Spain better than Italy? Why is Poland the most successful of the Post-Warsaw Pact countries? Such expansive comparative thinking is a non-factor among the commentariat here. A cesspool of thought, to be frank.

    More and more of the world’s poor are going to figure out that if they can just get to the Mexican border, then they can get across and claim asylum. Already we have Haitians (they boat into Eastern Mexico) showing up along with people from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, South America. China I suppose. Nations like Brazil are not demanding when it comes to getting a visa from say, Nigeria. You fly into Brazil and work your way northward. You take buses and airplanes until you get to Tijuana or other Mexican locations near our border. How difficult is this to do when you have grown up desperate in a shithole nation?

    As long as production increased at the same rate as population, per capita income remains the same. If productivity increases (the amount of production per worker), per capita income also rises.

    Of course, none of this informs us concerning median per capita incomes, which in addition to productivity is dependent on how the fruits of production are spread.

    Good morning all. I left Nigeria on Sunday and arrived Virginia on Tuesday. Wrote my POE story on Monday.

    Using Henrico Doctor's hospital and Dr. William Fitzhugh.

    Went for my first doctor's appointment on Wednesday. Forgot to stop by at the billing department of the hospital to make payment. Though I had pre-registered with the hospital over the phone last year November. Decided I would pay hospital fees by my next doctor's appointment next week Wednesday.

    Surprisingly, my water broke on Thursday night. I'm 35weeks and 6days. I was so scared. Thank God my mum is with me. Packed a few things and we headed for the hospital. Arrived at 12:24am Friday morning, checked and i was already 7cm dilated. Baby arrived 2:33am. I didn't use epidural. Labour was short but crazy. Used epidural for my first daughter so this no epidural thing got me bad.

    They brought in over 5 NICU specialist doctors into the delivery room cos they said baby was preterm and she would most likely have to go to NICU. To God be the glory, they checked her and all was well and no need for epidural. God is so Awesome!

    Please mums who used Henrico Doctor's hospital , I need steps on how to get all baby's documents fast as I want to be done as soon as possible and head to Maryland where I have family.

    Also, please I need the link for my husband to notarise for baby's US passport in Abuja. The link I have is for Lagos.

    Please someone help urgently.

    Actually, if Nigeria will experience a Malthusian catastrophe as a result of its chronic overpopulation, then you could potentially begin seeing eugenic fertility in Nigeria and a “race to the top.” After all, in times of crisis, it’s a really good idea to bet on the smarter members of society.

  118. @Endgame Napoleon
    The USA, too, is seeing less widespread prosperity and lower productivity as its population grows.

    1965 — 194 million

    2019 — 325 million

    Although economists count womb productivity as part of their definition of productivity on the premise that babies that cost taxpayers money for 18 years will someday work, far greater components of productivity are a real market for a country’s products and the incentive to work.

    The post-WWII US had a great, built-in, industrious market that could afford its products in war-ravaged Europe until European countries rebuilt their manufacturing base.

    China now has the great US (& European) markets that were handed to them on a silver platter, along with millions of jobs in US-owned companies, by profiteering, globalist, neoliberal elites. The Chinese didn’t even have to fight a war to get it.

    Maybe, you could attribute that to the prolific baby-making productivity of earlier generations of Chinese. They have reached a population of over 1 billion, albeit China instituted a one-child policy to deal with the un-productive results of overpopulation.

    Their one-child policy was instituted concurrent with their economic rise.

    And their real secret was the big-spending consumer markets in the US & Europe, plus infrastructure stimulus projects on steroids to keep their excess men employed.

    Not that all of this production of nonessential goods by low-cost Chinese workers has lowered skyrocketing prices on all major household expenses to unaffordable levels for Americans who’ve seen 40 years of falling wages, but photos of Chinese factories often feature nothing but a sea of low-paid teenaged girls.

    The USA constitutes 18% of their exports. European exports are a big chunk, but the Chinese also have a big internal market to sell into due to the copious womb-productive sex of previous generations. Those feminist career girls in factories probably aren’t pumping out as many kids as the moms of yesteryear who could have one job only: raising their own kids.

    Other than for American farmers, China’s massive population does not provide a good consumer market for American companies, especially for American exporters employing American citizens rather than the Chinese, since China is all about China.

    They use their prolific womb productivity—their billion mouthes to feed—as an excuse for putting old-number-one first, like so many welfare-fed womb producers do in America’s cronyist, womb-centric, low-wage, service-sector, office-job universe. It features a very un-diverse sea of moms with unearned income from spouses, child support or welfare and child tax credits, working for rock-bottom wages since unearned income covers their major bills.

    The Japanese are more give-and-take, putting factories in the USA, and buying more from the USA, possibly due to the less arrogant ways of people with lower population numbers.

    India is also not a great consumer market for the USA despite its massive population, and this is due to the mass poverty that exists there despite all of that womb productivity and a talented, educated class at the top. India’s huge population, in and of itself, has not aided work productivity.

    The USA hit its peak of widespread middle-class prosperity around 1965, when the population was much smaller, and most moms still worked only in the home. How could the USA be so productive without the cronyist, mom-dominated jobs?

    One reason is that breadwinners of all types had the economic incentive to work hard, productively, whereas now jobs are so diluted in quality and pay due to womb-productivity-related economic disincentives and social factors that it’s not even close to worth the effort.

    Single, childless citizens over 40 and young, single citizens who have not yet popped out kids are incentivized to work hard for this reason: making sure that single moms and legal / illegal immigrants can have independent households financed by Uncle Sam, with everything from free food, to reduced-cost rent, to up to $6,431 in refundable child tax credit cash and monthly cash from Uncle Sammy that also increases per kid produced, while the non womb producers live under momma’s thumb in her basement.

    The incentive for single moms and legal / illegal immigrants in single-breadwinner households to work part time—and not very hard for low wages—is the low earned-income limits for the many pay-per-birth welfare programs of the neoliberal era. Néolibéral welfare programs require recipients to show proof of 20 hours of work per week.

    It doesn’t have to be continuous work. And it is not since “welfare reform” facilitates the part-time / gig / churn-job economy, providing employers with a labor pool that is incentivized to work for less, part time. Womb producers go in and out of part-time jobs, and when temp job income goes over the earned-income limits, they skip the welfare during those months.

    Low-paid, prime-aged, single non womb producers who are welfare-ineligible, and single people with kids over 18 also with no access to unearned income from government, are often disincentivized unless they are in a handful of market-rewarded fields.

    After going through the hard-work and every-month-quota-meeting cycle many times, finding out that it yields less economically than the combo of out-of-wedlock womb-productive sex and slacker part-time work, many people with nothing but earned income bypass the futile combo of hard work, all day / everyday work attendance and meeting quotas every month if they can.

    It does not even result in pay high enough, and steady enough, to finance a one-room apartment in a safe neighborhood, much less anything else. Many Americans (95 million between 16 and 65) have given up being the chump or the “work horse,” as one frequently absentee crony-parent manager put it, as she churned & burned one of the handful of people who kept her bonus numbers up, helping her to fund her copious family vacation schedule.

    Churn new hard workers, while keeping the old ones who do not meet quotas, but who do participate in the crony-parent absenteeism collusion. It is “productivity” in the womb-centric era of peak feminism until it isn’t.

    Government-paid sex and reproduction, plus part-time work that keeps the womb producers under the earned-income limits for welfare pays far more for the bottom 80% of single-breadwinner womb producers. And churning hard workers while taking one morning, afternoon and week off (for kids) after another pays far more for the corrupt top 20% of needs-the-job, above-firing womb producers.

    Then there’s all of those other groups driving down wages and reducing job quality (hours) for those living on earned-only income by their ability to accept low pay: the retired, part-time workers with SSA covering their rent; the married mommies in all-mom offices, with their big spousal income and low wages bumped up by non-refundable child tax credits and libertine absenteeism privileges from crony-parent managers; the college kids with parent-paid rent, hired in all-youth workplaces as part-time backups so that the owner has constant replacements when young workers quit; and now disabled people with SSI checks, forced to work a few hours a week for their free healthcare and counted as “employed” like the rest of the part-time / gig workers.

    Why should employers have any pressure to hire full-time workers, with earned-only income to cover all household bills, at wages sufficient to cover rent that has doubled in many high-wage cities and is unaffordable for most non-welfare-eligible, non-womb-productive, single earners in all low-wage cities and low-wage towns?

    When they do hire for full-time jobs at rent-covering wages, the jobs are mostly allocated through the crony-parent job network—wherein parents-in-charge hire fellow parents, watching each other’s backs while taking tons of time off throughout the year beyond their PTO and pregnancy leave.

    This corrupt cronyism concentrates the wealth and benefits from salaried, non-job-creating positions under fewer roofs, halving the size of the college-educated middle class in the service of furthering the personal lives of the crony parents, not in the service of productivity.

    It is all about the womb productivity, even when a few, young non parents are hired. Managers say things like this: So in so’s recent-college-grad kid (often one of their friends’ kids) is about to get married and have kids. So, because she will be absent from work for long periods during the baby-producing process, she “needs the job.” She also “needs it” since her husband, too, has a high-paying job, and they’re about to buy a $300k condo.

    Womb-productivity-based cronyism is so baked into the rigged system that they do not even try to disguise it at this juncture in “feminism’s” evolution. When they do, it is only to add fathers to the list of above-firing, absenteeism-privileged cronies.

    This, of course, is a great way to enhance productivity in all professions since the work productivity—and not the womb productivity—is the focus in hiring and retention.

    Carry on, Crony Nation. Keep producing from the womb.

    Contrary to elite rhetoric about declining Western populations, Uncle Sam’s Neoliberal 25-Year Paid Womb-Productive Sex Plan has led to much higher womb production, with the Xer generation expanding only to 48 million and the underemployed Millennial generation sitting at a whopping 76 million.

    Many of the Xers are now underemployed, too, and the white ones are dying off in middle age at a much higher rate than earlier generations of old-fashioned fuddy duddies, with their stay-at-home moms instead of low-wage NannyCam-surveilled babysitters, their much bigger middle class, their paid-off modest houses at retirement and their lack of daycare-raised mass shooters.

    And yet… and yet.. for 50 years, all these Western fake-Nobel-prize economists (there is no Nobel prize in economics: check out wikipedia) have been screaming and howling that more people are always better. If someone could maybe afford to support 2 or 3 kids, then their refusal to try and have seven is simply selfish and proof of their lack of family values! More people are always better! It’s the ‘demographic dividend.’ It will save social security, because we needs lots of young starving babies to support old folks, which is why Bangladesh has such a better social security system than Switzerland (wait: what?). And so on.

    So how, really, can we blame some poor schmuck in outer nowhere, having seven kids, when Milton Friedman and Paul Krugman etc.etc. are insisting that they are the hope of the world? At this point, if we did talk truth to the Africans: breed like rodents, you and your kids will live and die like rodents – they will likely decide that we are lying and trying to stop them from becoming more powerful and prosperous…

    A few years ago it was a major European news story that Italy had a huge cash economy specifically to circumvent punitive socialist taxation.

    The Economist used to run articles around 1981 on how Italians appeared to spend more money on nice stuff than their official economic statistics suggested would be possible.

    The failure by policymakers in Nigeria to match the rising rate of reproduction with a corresponding level of productivity in the country,

    Not "productivity", production.

    Both are wrong: why should we accept that Africans produce or have a capacity to do so?

    Also, the punctuation in dearieme’s reply is incorrect. She really should think twice before throwing grammatical stones from her glass house.

    1. If you are referring to the comma outside the quotes, dearieme is British. It is correct there.

    Hard to say. Most economic activity in a country like that is off the books. Neighbors bartering, say, a chicken for a pound of flour aren't going to each report the value to the state just so they can pay tax on it.

    The unemployment rate doesn't mean much either.

    Nigerian economic statistics are lies when the truth is impossible to determine.

    U.S. economic statistics are lies when the truth is possible to determine.

    Conclusion: Nigerian politicians and economists are more honest than American politicians and economists. 😉

    Thanks

    isysleek:
    Good morning all. I left Nigeria on Sunday and arrived Virginia on Tuesday. Wrote my POE story on Monday.

    Using Henrico Doctor’s hospital and Dr. William Fitzhugh.

    Went for my first doctor’s appointment on Wednesday. Forgot to stop by at the billing department of the hospital to make payment. Though I had pre-registered with the hospital over the phone last year November. Decided I would pay hospital fees by my next doctor’s appointment next week Wednesday.

    Surprisingly, my water broke on Thursday night. I’m 35weeks and 6days. I was so scared. Thank God my mum is with me. Packed a few things and we headed for the hospital. Arrived at 12:24am Friday morning, checked and i was already 7cm dilated. Baby arrived 2:33am. I didn’t use epidural. Labour was short but crazy. Used epidural for my first daughter so this no epidural thing got me bad.

    They brought in over 5 NICU specialist doctors into the delivery room cos they said baby was preterm and she would most likely have to go to NICU. To God be the glory, they checked her and all was well and no need for epidural. God is so Awesome!

    Please mums who used Henrico Doctor’s hospital , I need steps on how to get all baby’s documents fast as I want to be done as soon as possible and head to Maryland where I have family.

    Also, please I need the link for my husband to notarise for baby’s US passport in Abuja. The link I have is for Lagos.

    Please someone help urgently.

    Thank you.

    If you want to see the future of the planet look at Nigeria.

    There is a beautiful capital city of Abuja (newly built in the 1980s) with great professional jobs and growing like crazy.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abuja

    The rest of the country is a disaster with broken infrastructure, gangs, rebels, unreliable electricity, bad roads, everyone hiding any wealth so it won't be stolen.

    Of course the government does not create anything--it is just a parasite slowly strangling its host.

    The politicians give great speeches, though.

    Yesterday the Wall Street Journal had a long article to the effect that all the world’s large, profitable
    hotel chains are building like crazy in Africa. It said that getting approval from the various kleptocracies to build the hotels is tedious and that much of the the construction material gets pilfered.
    It must be that the difficulties are outweighed by the superabundance of maids. Cheap help, in other words.

    Nigeria’s rising population is not a ticking time bomb for Japan or China or South Korea or any country not suicidal enough to believe in open borders. Nigeria’s population should be no concern of ours.
    That it is shows how utterly doomed we are. It’s not Nigeria’s rising population that’s the problem.
     
    More and more of the world's poor are going to figure out that if they can just get to the Mexican border, then they can get across and claim asylum. Already we have Haitians (they boat into Eastern Mexico) showing up along with people from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, South America. China I suppose. Nations like Brazil are not demanding when it comes to getting a visa from say, Nigeria. You fly into Brazil and work your way northward. You take buses and airplanes until you get to Tijuana or other Mexican locations near our border. How difficult is this to do when you have grown up desperate in a shithole nation?

    The current flood of Central American asylum seekers is showing the rest of the world how easy it is to crash our borders via the asylum scam.

    ticking time bomb for whom....
    certainly not for Nigerians who are alive and for the population of Africa.

    I am not worried in the least. all people still die and there will be a global population problem one day
    on th side of too few not to many. already in certain parts there are too few and for these parts a huge population problem

    one day when the world is well and truly developed and all are in sync with that developed state of society..and all have the means to restrict their reproduction and things to do with their lives..that would the real depopulation challenge. humans are going to have to deal with that. good luck to them. it wont be my problem anymore
