Do parents think about future?

I am not sure parents think about the kind of life their offspring are going to have? Thinking about future world, is something any one could do without Govt. mandate. Economics, living standard and natural resources are directly related to each other; and people have understood this from centuries; and we need to add one more parameter population to the equation.

Going by past, only manufacturing plants can employ mass of people. As the time goes, automation will take over the manufacturing.(Imagine automating BEL, HAL, HMT etc...). In manufacturing-output, US comes top, but employs very less people compared to 70s; this is because of Automation. China will end up in same situation; once the salaries rise, and companies replace people with machine.

I think the key thing is median-age. Lower the median age more jobs are needed, also higher chances for rise in population. Last night BBC said Arab world needs 100mil jobs because median demography is 30+. India and Indonesia also have very low median age.

Without being specific, above details should alarm anyone (mean parent). By 2030 every infant of today would be competing with whole world. Given all this, people in India should be reducing population at an industrial scale.
