It won't happen as long as young people, the ones who would have kids go abroad.
The country is not just experiencing a fertility spike; Hungary is winding back the clock on much of the fertility and family-structure transition that demographers have long considered inevitable.
If you reward couples to have more kids, you don't need immigrants. Who would have thought?
The trouble is the cost.
It is not affordable for Hungary in the long term.
Also educated women are still not having children. So I hate to say it but are the right sort of parents having children?
I didn't read the article, cause, frankly speaking, I don't care.
But I noticed a fertility rate of 1.5 (2017) somewhere in there. That's well below the replacement rate of 2.1.
Add to that, that they hate immigrants over there and that young folks are fleeing their country in great numbers (can't blame them), and it's very likely the population will decline. And it's not just Hungary.
Orbán will need a lot more money if he wants to get to the replacement rate. Millions and millions. What a pity they're gonna get cut on their EU fundings...
The exact same thing is happening in Poland, btw. They're throwing loads of money at young folks as well as an incentive to get more kids. They, also, witnessed a little bump in the fertility rate. But it's still well below the replacement rate as well. I believe it's even lower than Hungary's atm.
Either you guys start fucking like wild rabbits and find a way to keep your young people at home, or you will see a decline in population. The only other way to counter that, is face reality and start accepting immigrants at one point in time.
Cause that's what they do over there with information they don't like.
So be it.
Good luck with that inevitable decline.
The problems you're pointing out are real ones. But you give up far too easily. There are plenty of groups of people that have managed to maintain birth rates at or even far above replacement, despite living in a developed country. Take Israel, for example. Or any religious fundamentalist group, like Hasidic Jews or the Amish or Mormons. They have shown that it is possible.
The other potential approach is to invest in ectogenesis research, so that the government can mass produce babies a la Brave New World. This is obviously controversial now, but it's going to be needed at some point anyway once more regions of the world develop and the global birth rate falls below replacement.
As for citizens leaving...that's only a problem so long as there are countries giving them a better opportunity in life than the one where they are born. As Western European countries slowly become more hostile to them, there will be less of an issue with Hungarians emigrating.
You are right, I travel to Hungary a lot. the immigrants really do not want to satay there. They want Germany, Sweden, UK and France.
There are a lot of Chinese immigrants in Budapest. Historical reasons.
There are about 80,000 Vietnamese in the Czech Republic and many of them are there already 2nd generation with the Czech citizenship. They have children who often follow Czech values and culture, and date many local Czechs over their ethnic kin, so there is a good chance that Vietnamese emigrants will assimilate nicely within the next two generations. Many new Vietnamese are due family reunification arrive yearly, but they do not seem to have a desire to use welfare system, and they are hard working and unproblematic.
It's not increasing, it's maintaining. If you don't maintain you'll end up with a load of old retired people relying on few young people to work and the country's economy goes to complete shit.
Hungary is not Europe skeptic, if you check any statistics, Hungary has one of the highest support for EU membership. The government lines out all the time the importance of Hungary being part of Euorpe.
What matters is who leads the country. The people show what they believe in by voting. Hungary and Poland are eurosceptic countries due to their eurosceptic governments and leadership. If its people weren't then they would not have voted for some of the most eurosceptic people/parties in Europe.
You’re wrong. EU bureaucracy=/=EU.
EU is much much more and people are mostly euro enthusiasts, not necessarily in love with power hungry EU bureaucracy.
Orban and PiS are pushing people against the EU with their propaganda on national TV, they are not saying " lets get this bureaucrat out of his post". It's an institutionalised form of agenda pushing against the power that the EU has over their countries in order to seize it.
You’re oversimplifying and again EU bureaucracy=/=EU.
Further integration is a vital part of the European Union. And Euroscepticism is not only about further integration as it targets many other EU institutions and powers.
(which cannot and should not be done, for various reasons, starting from history to culture)
Which can and should be done, for various reasons starting from history of non-stop war and common culture and values. The minute you stop further integration, the whole point of the EU, which is about preserving peace in Europe and maintaining the region's relevancy, we might as well pack up and leave to get ready for our new overloads to sweep in from the outside.
There is no European nation. There is an identity of shared history and many shared traditions. Most importantly we share the same values. Federalists don't want a European country, we want a federation that serves as a uniting branch of government which can negate the effects of the weakening of European power.
I do not want for this to happen without majority support. However, if it doesn't, I don't see how our values and way of life will survive this century.
Far-right bullshit buzzwords detected. I embrace the enlightenment, a movement which upholds secularism not judao-christian traditions.
Postmodern cultural marxist blah blah blah. I am a classical liberal believing in western civilisation, liberty, equality and the notion that these values are more important than the geographic location I was born in. That is enlightenment.
