ExaTrend of the 2010s: Demographic Crunch

Excerpt from the list of ExaTrends of the 2010s:

DEMOGRAPHIC CRUNCH

Note on ExaTrends: Given the exponential pace of change of today we are far beyond a world of MegaTrends. Exa is the prefix meaning 10 to the power of 18, following Mega, Giga, Tera, and Peta. As such Exa is Mega cubed.
