Skip to comments.'China Has 10 Years Left, At Most' — 100 Million Population Drop Could Lead To Economic Disaster, According To Famed Analyst

Renowned geopolitical analyst Peter Zeihan recently made a startling prediction during an interview with commentator Joe Rogan.
Zeihan believes that China's collapse is imminent, with only 10 years remaining before potential disaster. The crux of his prediction lies in his assertion that China has misrepresented its population numbers, leading him to estimate that the country's actual population is lower by 100 million than what the government has officially reported.
"This is their last decade," Zeihan said of China. When Rogan clarified by asking, So, you're saying that China has 10 years to go?" His response was, "At most."
Some argue that China's massive military, control over its people and economic power are safeguards against its demise, but others point to concerning signs that hint at potential challenges ahead.
China's economy is showing signs of strain from various angles. Civil unrest erupted as a result of its strict zero-COVID policy, leading to lockdowns, reduced industrial output and restrained consumer spending.
Last year, economic growth experienced a significant decline, reaching one of its lowest levels in the past 50 years. The fourth quarter, in particular, was severely impacted by strict economic policies and political decisions that were deemed unwise.
With China's population aging rapidly, there are fewer working-age people to support retirees. The one-child policy, which lasted for more than three decades before ending in 2016, worsened the situation and threatens long-term economic prospects. While China has attempted to address this by allowing couples to have up to three children, the extent of its impact on the workforce remains uncertain.

They’re doing better than we are. We’ve got 6 and a half right?
Policies have consequences! Limiting people to one child was a horrible, human rights violation and they are reaping those cruel policies they pushed on their own population.
That’s about 6 years longer than we have left.
Wishful thinking. Some bumps, sure, but they have family, national, and racial unity going for them to a greater degree than we do. They’re not in danger of real problems short of a military or health disaster.
Of course. We don’t need to worry, because diversity is our strength. /S
That's OK - the world ends in 7 years.
This is ridiculous. China is not transparent, and always downplays. If they are saying a 100 million decline, it must be a lot more.
The timeline prediction is useless. Could be 2. Could be 20.
Marxism is not sustainable.
The only question is how much trouble they’ll cause on the way out. WWIII is the worst case scenario.
“’China Has 10 Years Left, At Most’ — 100 Million Population Drop Could Lead To Economic Disaster, According To Famed Analyst”
LOL. Ah yes another famed expert weighs in. The Chinese have been around for a long time and suspect they will be around a while longer.
The Americans banks have been closed. People were lining up to get their money. Stocks have lost most of their value.
“Marxism is not sustainable.”
Now America has something to really worry about.
China has a population in excess of 1.4 BILLION
100 million is little more than a rounding error to them.
The propaganda is over the top nowadays isn’t it.
The US is in a competition for economic leadership in the world with China hence the drama that’s really about computer chips now made on Taiwan.
China has to be dissed and put down factually or fictionally public opinion in the USA and around the world has to be poisoned regarding China for the sake of business.
Carry On “Deep State” but I not taking a deep swallow of this swill.
This prediction is like climate change. It is so far out...everyone will forget it was ever written 10 years from now when it does not happen.
“Marxism is not sustainable.”
They long ago abandoned Marxism.
They are now full on fascist. Textbook fascist.
China will be around. The question is how they will adapt to their new reality, and what form they will assume. In the near term, probably more dangerous. In the long term, less powerful.
I was thinking the same thing.
The race is on.
Climate change annihilation of us all or the downfall of the workers’ paradise in China.
Video also applies to the fight to bring the Biden Crime Family to justice.
...and yet the globalists force the American taxpayer to pay back money borrowed from China that’s used to line the globalists’ pockets.
