Foreign Correspondents Ep.133 - Population shock
S. Korea undergoing a population shock, as deathsexpected to outnumber births for the first time in 2019

South Korea's population is on the decline. According to projections released by Statistics Korea on March 27, the number of deaths in the country is expected to outpace the number of births for the first time this year, with the population being forecast to fall in earnest beginning in 2028. The rapid decline in the working-age population (between the ages of 15 and 64) is already underway, with signs indicating that the country is on the verge of falling off a demographic cliff. The low birth rate and the aging/falling population is expected to have a wide-reaching impact on South Korean society. The legal criteria of a senior citizen, the vulnerable pension scheme, and the increasing burden on young people to care for the elderly, have all emerged as issues of serious concern over the last few years. The demographic crisis is also likely to have a direct impact on the economy, including potential losses in productivity. In this week's edition of 'Foreign Correspondents', we sit down with our panel of journalists to talk about the various issue related to South Korea's population crisis, and what we can do to better protect future generations from its adverse side effects
