You do realize that it is 2009 and that "the middle of the century" is 2050?

You can't predict demography 40 years into the future, as a small change on the short term can have huge consequences over such a long period of time.
All I'm saying is that it is highly unlikely that in 40 years demographics have caused France to have a bigger population than Germany. For such a thing to really happen, there need to be much more dramatic circumstances than today's birthrates and low immigration, which afterall could be different next year (immigration moreso than birthrates).
