2 things that interest me wrt this analysis:

(1) USA is about the most immigrant friendly country in the world, isn't it? Is this changing in the light of yee-haa US boomers?

(2) Where does UK stand with respect to this analysis?

We probably have a similar age demographic and our engineered immigration (60m -> 70m) will be less than the US (300m total -> 400m total).

(1) The USA is made up of several large ethnic groups--mostly Brits & Irish (although Germans are the single largest Euro-ethic group) which is where they got their Yee-haa from. The most warlike generation of the last century or so was the Depression kids--they are the ones who caused all the trouble in 1929 and the ensuing WW2 and Korea and making trouble for that nice Mr. Hitler and Pong Chong.

(2) The UK follows their Yee haa cousins with the same yee haa policies be it in the Falklands, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland or wherever we need to take charge. Not the same yee-haa scale as in the 19th century when we yee-haad 2/3rds of the world's surface.

problem is - US has pork barrel spending from both republicans and democrats, whereas the concensus in the UK is more towards a balanced budget

and our demographic differs by having our baby boomers skewed about a decade later and more spread out, this means that pension legislation changes CAN be enacted in order to offset the cost of retired baby boomers, and the NHS is ALREADY more cost efficient than the american healthcare system

I think our biggest problem is the eurozone rather than our own demographics
