writing IELTS - example


Write about the following topic:the birth rate in most developed countries is predicted to begin to fall over the next 50 years. By 2030 it is estimated that over one third of the population in most developed countries will be aged 65 and over. What effects will these predictions have on developed countries if they prove true? What can be done now to deal with this situation?give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience. You should write at least 250 words.Nowadays, the biggest and richest nations in the world are estimated to face a real problem in the future that is the fall of birth-rate. Indeed, this phenomenon is already born although it doesnt seem dangerous yet. But statistics predict that by 2030 the number of people aged 65 and over will have reached about 34% of the entire world population. In other words this means that there will be much more elderly people than young people. But why is this going on? There are many relevant factors and In my opinion they are all linked to the economic system of these developed countries. Modern society is essentially based on economic development, work and technology. World wide nations are always becoming more and more competitive and thats why corporations, agencies, etc need so many qualified workers. Because of this, women and men need to study and work hard to reach high levels in the world of work since they are young.in addition, its difficult for a pregnant woman or for a mother to get a job because they arent considered efficient but just a problem for the economy. For instance, my aunt has been redundant because she was pregnant. In order to avoid these situations, women and men dont settle down and they are more independent and interested in their jobs especially now that it is going on the economical crysis. the increasing of over aged people will bring to so many effects. First of all, governments will provide a more efficient sanitary organization because more people will need assistance. Maybe public sanitary wont exist no more because it will need too many taxes. Anyway, taxes for young people will dramatically raise up as well as young disoccupation, because old workers are more expert. Finally, the official retirement age is likely to change and it will increase. These are all the possible negative sides of the phenomenon; on the other hand, it is certain to be also many developments in medicine, biotechnologies, artificial births, etc in order to improve lifes wealth. To outline, I am not sure that there are real solutions to this problem because the system that powers up everything is too strong and it isnt certain to change.
