This link is to a thread containing some eye-opening charts portraying how the world (UK in particular) is changing under our feet. Some of the changes being captured have been gaining momentum over many years, and are fairly familiar (see this chart, for example; and the growth in financial inequality).Others are less so, e.g.
- % young adults living with their parents
- % women aged 30 that are childless
- out-of-pocket payments for healthcare in the UK - now the same as in the USA!
- rise in crowdfunding to pay for medical costs
These sorts of socio-economic shifts require a D.Cummings to wrestle with them politico-strategically. The long term implications will be significant. Can't see B.Johnson having the slightest interest in that anymore, though.
