I’ve mentioned before (including here and here) the cry “Overpopulation!” amounts to a diversion, fostered by the 1% and their unwitting pawns, a detour away from reforming a terribly flawed distributional system which channels the land and resource rents of the people to the uber wealthy.
David Brooks takes a look at the new Malthusians in this new PDF – FE People-2012.
A chapter in Michael Hudson’s “Super Imperialism” also takes the World Bank’s neo-Malthusianism to task.
Zeepoppers are misguided. Malthusianism is knee-jerk, and doesn’t the 1% love it? 😉
