The World is UNDERpopulated

Posted By Don Boudreaux On July 22, 2011 @ 3:06 pm In Complexity & Emergence,Myths and Fallacies,Population | Comments Disabled

While many myths compete with “the-world-is-over-populated-with-humans” myth for the honor of being the myth with least empirical and theoretical support, no myth surpasses the over-population myth in groundlessness and, really, absurdity pregnant with totalitarian impulses.  I like the take of the Boston Globe‘s Jeff Jacoby [1].

And see here [2] just how out of touch with reality is the myth of over-population.  (HT Chris Meisenzahl)
