I've read a number of articles on the aging global population, entitlements and how population growth will peak around 9 or 10 billion in the next century.

I would be interested to hear peoples' thoughts on how this will effect the global economy both beforeand after the transition has taken place. What might the global economic system look like?

Particularly with regard to labor, there may come a time when there is a highly limited amount of labor in the marketplace. There would not need to be as much construction, other than repair and upgrades. That should affect property and land values, even if they are limited.

Companies will not always be able to rely on geographic expansion to grow, and may begin to encroach on other industries in order grow revenues and profits. This would further increase competition.

Again, any thoughts on the matter are appreciated.
