LAST YEAR, THEY LOST 600 THOUSAND PEOPLE
Underlining that Japan’s population decreased by 600 thousand people last year, Tesla CEO said, “I always support making babies.” “The current trend is not good,” said Musk, who has eight children. “The number of people does not show a good trend,” he said, adding, “Japan is a leading indicator. They lost 600 thousand people last year.”
The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of Japan reported that the country’s population fell for the eleventh consecutive year and decreased by 644 thousand people.
Official data also showed that the proportion of people aged 15 to 64 reached the lowest level at 59.4 percent, while the proportion of those aged 65 and over reached a record high at 28.9 percent.“
IF IT CONTINUES LIKE THIS, JAPAN WILL COMPLETELY ELIMINATE

“Many people say that the current number of people on the planet is unsustainable. That’s not entirely true. The population density is actually pretty low,” said the world’s richest person.
