    I'm not convinced on immigration either way.
    Immigration of suitable people (people who add value rather than drag on the economy) to keep the population stable seems like a fair idea.
    Adding people to 'grow' the economy is dubious in my book.
    Japan did neither - I'm not sure if they made a concious decision knowing the population would fall or if they really took their eye off the ball.
