  •  Population growth is peaking (2+ / 0-)

    and the cause can be mostly attributed either forced birth control (China) or women's education and improved wealth distribution (everywhere else). China is due for a massive population implosion in the next few decades and the rest of the world will contend with the unintended economic effects declining populations.

    Either way, it's hard to attribute population growth as the primary driver for economic inequality given that a tiny portion of the population controls a vastly disproportionate amount of the world's wealth. Fix the wealth distribution problem and the population problem will likely fix itself without resorting to forced sterilizations.
