Re: <nettime> 'fuck europe!' then what?

hi Keith, 

your pithy remarks are well taken, although i wouldn't put much trust
in demographic forecasts (they've always been wrong) 90 years down
the road, especially with rampant climate change. as you say, Europe
is the loser in the great recession, let's see if it's permanent -
the old world is a lot more mutant the new, even in recent decades.
However, taking the logic of your argument further, and considering
that population times GDP is a good proxy for global power, China
would end up dominating the world. It might be probable, but i don't
know how desirable that is..
