The workforce is declining because of population decrease. If economy sees no growth for a decade or so, is Japan shrinking? Will we see a poor society with lots of homeless people on the street? Will Tokyo be full of the Japanese panhandlers while there are lots of foreigners or immigrants?
Am I imagining too much? I hope so. But who knows.
I sometimes wonder what the Japanese government has been preparing so far for the poor society where two-thirds of people are the elderly.
