Podcast: Darrell Bricker On The ‘Empty Planet’ And What It Means For Atlantic Canada

The conventional wisdom around the global population, backed by the United Nations’ own projections, is that it will continue to grow in the coming decades. Economies around the world are banking on that outcome, tying their growth plans to having more and more people generate new economic activity.

Darrell Bricker, Global CEO of Public Affairs for Ipsos and co-author of ‘Empty Planet’, says the global population is actually going to shrink instead and policymakers around the world have to rethink their growth strategies as a result. On the latest episode of the Huddle “Insights” podcast, Mills talks with Bricker about what that means for Atlantic Canada, which has experienced slow growth in terms of population and GDP for more than a decade.
