Population Pyramids of the World from 1950 to 2100

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Population Pyramids of the World from 1950 to 2100

Population Pyramids of the World from 1950 to 2100
Source: United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Population Division.

I thought the 70-75 #'s would have been a bit skewed more than they are.

They numbers for this decade do not bode well for a nation struggling to enter the 21st century.
A basically illiterate, self centered, aimless population. Corrupt to the core leadership. Ranks right in there with a few Central African nations. Ignorant poor sheeple are much easier to herd.

So what. Cheap labor forever.

Perhaps the best summary of Cambodia in a nutshell that I have ever read. Quite simply a country with no future with a delusional and tenacious fantasy that their legacy of Angkor Wat
still lies dormant, awaiting a future rebirth. The country is beyond salvation.

There must be some hope. Well, not about the corruption, but surely there must be some way for the people to pull themselves out of Pol Pot's abyss? Or has it just been the blind leading the blind since 1979 in a never ending cycle? He really fucked this place over.

wages have increased markedly in the past 5 years.
lots of degree holders in the building side of things are doing increasingly well.

even factory workers are in short supply.
they can resign from one place on a friday and hire back on by monday, and base rate is 245 now.
impossible to find anyone for minimum wage

"That's very depressing." Yes, it is, but most posters here lead lives isolated from the rural poor and have little, if anything at all, to do with the urban poor. They speak little or broken Cambodian since they immerse themselves in the expat communities. They mostly have "a gentleman's understanding" of the Khmer culture. Writings by people like Mr. Thayer serve as a good wakeup call.
