ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of aging populations on European countries' potential for economic growth in light of Europe's sovereign debt crisis beginning in 2009. It is said that declining birthrates have led to shrinking workforces, an effect which negatively impacts the economic growth that could help to repay national debts in countries such as Italy, Spain, and Greece.
