The Barrenness of Success - STEVE W. MOSHER

The muffled explosions you hear are the sounds of European populations crashing.  Read more...

The bomb that fizzled - BEN WATTENBERG

By having relatively few children, people today are eroding the population base that should pay for their pensions in their old age.  Read more...

The Fertility Gap - Charles Colson

Among Western industrialized nations we are in the middle of what one observer calls a "global baby bust"—except, that is, among devout Christian families.  Read more...

The Global Baby Bust - Phillip Longman

Most people think overpopulation is one of the worst dangers facing the globe. In fact, the opposite is true.   Read more...

The High Price of Pop Control - JACQUELINE R. KASUN

Population control is now being advanced under the banner of "sustainable economics".  Read more...

The High Price of Pop Control - RON BRUNTON

Rather than fearing that we are at the tail end of a period of rapidly increasing agricultural productivity, it is far more likely that we are in early phases of a major technological revolution.  Read more...

The Not So Dismal Science: Humanitarians v. Economists - William McGurn

I am struck by the similarity between the church's view of the relationship between the family and the economy and the view of economists – arrived at by totally independent means. Economic science and spiritual concerns appear to point in the same direction.  Read more...

The Population Bomb That Fizzled - Celeste McGovern

If the predictions in Paul Ehrlich's 1968 best seller, The Population Bomb, had been near the mark, Americans would be eating their dogs and children by now and yearning for a condominium - a little elbow room - on the moon.  Read more...

The Population Boom - Wall Street Journal

More people means more prosperity.   Read more...

The Population Dud - Austin Ruse

After years of “successful” population-control efforts, experts are realizing that their fears were groundless. And as fertility rates continue to drop, well below expected levels, new concerns are emerging.  Read more...

The Population Implosion - Nicholas Eberstadt

Be careful what you wish for. After decades of struggling to contain the global population explosion that emerged from the healthcare revolution of the 20th century, the world confronts an unfamiliar crisis: rapidly decreasing birthrates and declining life spans that might set back the progress of human development.  Read more...

The Population Implosion - Nicholas Eberstadt

There are simply too many human beings — at least that is the view of the antinatal activists, who cry alarm from various American foundations, United Nations programs, foreign-aid agencies and activist organizations.   Read more...

The Root Causes of Hunger - Samuel Gregg

The Vatican is reviewing the issue of genetically modified foods, a process that is expected to result in a qualified endorsement. In light of this development, Acton’s Research Director Sam Gregg examines the ethics of GMF and its promise of reducing hunger in the world.  Read more...

Too Many People? - JACQUELINE R. KASUN

The worldwide movement promoting population control commands many billions of dollars in resources, yet its power ultimately depends, especially in countries like the United States, on public ignorance of the facts.  Read more...

Too many people? Not by a long shot - STEVE W. MOSHER

Confounding the doomsayers, world population growth is slowing dramatically.  Read more...

U.N. report on world population suggests disaster is near - ZENIT

Whatever problems the world faces — and environmental concerns are indeed legitimate — “reproductive rights” are not the solution. The U.N. Population Fund would do a lot better to fight for economic justice and balanced development. Adequate income for families and access to decent education and jobs are what people most need.  Read more...

UNFPA mis-states world population - SCOTT WEINBERG

Steven W. Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute (PRI), today criticized the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) for releasing a "statistically misleading" report "designed to generate fear of an overpopulation crisis that simply does not exist."  Read more...

What African Women Want (not “Reproductive Health Care”) - Steve Mosher

PRI recently completed its first-ever survey of the health care needs of the African people. Carried out in the West African country of Ghana, the survey results indicate zero demand for "reproductive health care." There are huge, unmet needs for many kinds of primary health care in Africa, but the claim of the population control lobby that there is an "huge unmet need" for contraception, sterilization, and abortion is demonstrably false.  Read more...

Where Have All the Children Gone? - Pavel Kohout

The question of why fertility has been falling so dramatically in continental Europe has been food for thought for both demographers and economists. The answer must be looked for in several important factors, which, to further complicate matters, do not simply add up in their impact.  Read more...
