not only Brazil, but most LatAm countries have birth rates below replacement levels. In Brazil population is expected to start declining earlier than in other countries in the region, but all of them are expected to have population decline in some decades.

Latino countries are going through their demographic bonus, without taking advantage of it.

And never mind the high fertility rates in sub Sahara Africa as how many of those babies will even reach the age of 5 or 12?

The wealthier countries can more afford a low fertility rate, as they can afford robots, like Japan, where there's a mere 1.2 applicants per job. There's now an all robot hotel in Tokyo, robotic caregivers and robotic sex workers and robots working in agriculture. But can Brazil afford that with a huge aging population?

how's this? how can they ban anticonceptive methods. If people doesn't want to procreate, they won't.

sex robots is... sad.
