It is not surprising that the present world crisis has strongly affectedRomania - in many different sectors of the economic, political, social, financial life, etc.As an answer to the economic crisis, which we are all affected by, different strategies,reforms and models of economic growth are worked out, yet no one talks about what ismaybe the most important aspect - that of the human stock.The possible explanations behind the economic crisis are multiple and very muchdiscussed, but what is not much taken into consideration is the drastic decrease of thepopulation and its significant tendency to grow old. The natality decrease, in time, leadsto the reduction of the consumptive society, to the supply diminution, and as aconsequence, we can state that the degradation of the demographic processes, as amatter of fact, represents the basis of the economic crisis.
