Re: Uncontrolled growth

Birth rates decline with prosperity, most western countries are only experiencing growth now because of immigration from underdeveloped nations.

Barring massive breakthroughs in life extension we’ll probably peak in the 9–10 billion range and then start going down as the countries leading the growth chart develop and begin to lose fertility rates.

Granted 9–10 billion is too many, but the point is that there is a probable end to the growth.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
