Epigenetics, confidence,,,birth and death rates

In the very crowded populations, 20% of seagulls are lesbian.
If a girl lives in a home with poor economic conditions, she will start menstruation early.
If you cut way back on food intake, it can extend life span as much as 40%.
Wiki, "The life extension varies for each species, but on average there was a 30–40% increase in life span in both mice and rats. In late adulthood, acute caloric restriction partially or completely reverses age-related alterations of liver, brain and heart proteins"
These are all examples from research about epigenetics.

"For nearly a century after the term “epigenetics” first surfaced on the printed page, researchers, physicians, and others poked around in the dark crevices of the gene, trying to untangle the clues that suggested gene function could be altered by more than just changes in sequence. Today, a wide variety of illnesses, behaviors, and other health indicators already have some level of evidence linking them with epigenetic mechanisms, including cancers of almost all types, cognitive dysfunction, and respiratory, cardiovascular, reproductive, autoimmune, and neurobehavioral illnesses. Known or suspected drivers behind epigenetic processes include many agents, including heavy metals, pesticides, diesel exhaust, tobacco smoke, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, hormones, radioactivity, viruses, bacteria, and basic nutrients."

What does this have to do with the economy?
The Central Banks along with the private banks have impoverished a great mass of the people. Since we respond "genetically" to exterior stimulus, we have collectively reduced our birth rate.
Tokyo has an area population of 13.8 million. The Japanese government has started a dating service to get people to hook up and procreate. The girls are all looking for a "farm boy".

As Japan faces a future which could see its population shrink by a third in just 40 years

Growing consumption and a growing population are a central necessity to our debt-money and credit system. As Japan clearly shows, there is no escaping from demographics.
an oppressive or unpleasant atmosphere that surrounds or emanates from something.
"a miasma of despair"

The Wall Street Journal on Twitter: "'Deaths of despair' are on the rise ...
substance abuse, suicides and diabetes drove a rise in premature deaths in nearly half the country,

There is lots of speculation about the next recession on the net. There are lots of people talking about "post-scarcity" economics where everything will be free. The PTB don't have a chance of continuing the current system of looting the working class. Negative Epigenetic pressures will guarantee that the birth rate will fall and, the death rate will rise.
China is locking down the entire country under AI surveillance. Their fertility rate is only 1.5 People just don't want to bring children into a messed-up world.
Japanese sovereign debt is 260% of gdp. 80% is the death cross. As long as the Japanese GOV pumps in boatloads of money, things keep going,,, after a fashion. Almost all State are going to find themselves in a similar position. In December, we will find out of the ECB is going to shut off the printing press.
The FED has plans to do this too. Capital flight is temporarily holding up U.S. markets. This won't go on forever. As the demographic crash gets worse, the Central Banks will be under constant pressure to print and subsidise retirees. As we see in Japan, and now, Europe, this can only be done with freshly printed money. It becomes impossible to attract private bond buyers when the State has a runaway printing press.

A bid part of epigenetic pressure is related to confidence. Confidence is rapidly being lost.
"In late 2018, an increasing number of Americans believe that an economic downturn is coming, and they are taking actions consistent with that belief. As a result, they are actually helping to produce the result that they fear. "
The Psychological Bubble That Has Been Propping Up The U.S. Economy Is Starting To Implode
So, what will be the low point of this feedback loop?
