Well, as for the Netherlands, I can tell you the influx of immigrants, and the after effects of the baby-boom after WOII, combined with continuously increasing life expectancy, means we will still see a net growth of the number of people living here in the next one or two decades. Yes, the population ages, but that doesn't mean it's shrinking! And the pressure on land resources continuous. Even the elderly need homes...

And to be honest, I don't consider a few million less people (and cars and endless stretches of tarmac and concrete) here in the Netherlands a bad thing! Bly me, I can't wait for it... Viva la natura!

And after that: we'll just have to open up the flood gates. I have no doubts many people will want to join us here in Europe and the US...
