During the twentieth century and the early years of the twenty-first, humanity has gone through its biggest demographic transformation in history. Birth rates are usually inversely proportional to a country’s level of development and modernisation. And despite the low fertility levels in industrialised countries, the increase in longevity means that the population is not decreasing. Specifically in Spain, life expectancy has gone from 34 to 80 years of age in only one century.

What social or economic changes emerge as a result of this situation and how do they influence society? Is this tendency sustainable in the short and long term? Responding to these and other questions will be Julio Pérez Díaz, a demographer and researcher at the CSIC, and José Antonio Herce, Tenured Lecturer in Fundaments of Economic Analysis at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

A debate format in which, once a month, on a Monday at 7:30 pm, leading experts analyse important issues that make up today’s social reality with the journalists Antonio San José and Íñigo Alfonso.

What does it mean to be Spanish today?, Where is going Russia?, coalition governments, new approaches to university education, the future of the press in Spain, the future of the Autonomous Regions in Spain, electoral reform, robots and industry, climate change, political leadership during the Spanish democracy, pharmaceutical industry and health, the Arab world, the solutions to the crisis, independence movements, globalisation, the future of Europe, anti-system movements, aging, virus of the new Millennium and the future of the monarchies in the world have been several of the issues involved.
