Contrary to common wisdom Turkey is a rapidly aging country. It also has a very low retirement age and labor force participation ratio. Thus, it is extremely important to reduce unemployment and build up the skill level of the in-school generation. Even before Covid pandemic the government’s efforts in these regards have been dismal, with rising levels of “structural” (long-term) unemployment. The destruction of the service industry added to the woes, with the broad definition of unemployment soaring to 28% in July-August data. Young Turks are tired of an archaic and political education system, with up to 75% wanting to go abroad asap. Low employment and the rapidly rising number of young retirees sows the seeds of a devastating Social Security Crisis, as well as regarding Turkey’s growth and human development.

Demographic time-bomb is when you need more population and you don't have it. With industrialization you need less population for thee same amount of throughput. If we keep up a good job with productivity we don't need to work more on re-productivity.

We're goinh to work towards extinctio ? Make living and cost of living better, and ppl will automatically work towards a life of their choice.

Remember RTE said 3 kids, which makes sense if conditions are in place.

This would mean a rise in population, which is good our country is big enough :)

Yeah, but every kid is increasingly more costly compared to old times. It is good to have them but not a disaster when you have less of them. You can ask for 3 per family but you can be happy with 2. Last time I checked we are at 1.9

3 kids thingy comes from Ataturk. Ataturk said many times to have lots of kids so the Turkish race carries on.

Guys lets all do our part and become a love machine.

China and India can export their population to win influence. We got a way to go 😁

Imperialist plan to destroy Turkey.

They can't do it by war so they are doing it with the long term plan, changing demography, creating internal conflicts, and then Balkanization attempts. Divide and conquer.

But we idiots didn't learned from the Ottoman past, noooo we took more Kurds in the 80/90s, and now tolerate Syrian hordes. The already politicallly divided Turkish people should now bear this?

Syrians are the majority in Kilis, a decade and Sanliurfa, Gaziantep, Hatay will become majority Syrian. And if shit hits the fan we will have a Syrian version of HDP and PKK.

Refugee waves towards Turkey and Europe is a plan by Globalist/Zionist thugs.

Brothers, no matter your level of industrialisation there's simply nothing that can substitute the replacement ratio of 2 children. Many nations are currently suffering this curse, and it's not simply just about economic output, but now in many cases the sheer survival of these people! Look at many countries in Europe.
Turks need to have kids.
Hey you can always ask your Pakistani bros and sisters for tips, we're on 3% and currently heading towards 300 million lol. But yes for us it's the reverse, lack of development, but loads of little ones.

Which tip bro?
Pull it out, put it in? It's basically economic reason, people tend to work longer and have less time especially for kids.

Kids, in the old days, were happy with a stuffed doll and a soccer ball. That was more than enough. If they had a bicycle too, they thought they were living like kings and queens.

Today's kids want the latest iPhones, PlayStations, XBoxes, Apple Watches, designer clothes, Rayban sunglasses. Otherwise they think they're not "happy". And parents don't want to see their kids depressed, so they decide to not have as many instead. It's a simple question of economic means.

it depends on you, if teach them even with your own behavior that all this things are nessesary than they will want all these things..

as a child you will want many stuff (my list) :
walkie talkies, electric car that slow things, a sword, he man and all other figures, a skateboard, a gameboy (I should have get one if I make hatim but instead I got a broken nose), an atari, my bmx wich had been stolen (I curse that guy even today he picked up the wrong boys bycicle ;) ), a playstation, super nintendo, a multifunctional casio watch, man the list goes on I did not get most of them but it was not a bad thing specially the electric stuff..

children will always want things and it will be always a catastrphe if they dont get it.. after a year they may think it was idiotic..

Some ways to remedy this aside from the Obvious "muh increase birth rates":

Ease immigration of Turkmen groups living in Arab countries and the same to AzerTurks in Iran.

promote Idea of returning home to Turkish Diaspora in Europe
