Peak People? Are We Actually Running Out of Our Most Valuable Resource? : TreeHugger
"People around the world are living longer, and having far fewer children — a consequence of increased female education rates and declining absolute poverty. Countries like Bangladesh, Indonesia and Iran are now having so few children that their populations are on the verge of shrinking....The world is on the threshold of what might be called “peak people.” The world’s supply of working-age people will soon be shrinking, causing a shift from surplus to scarcity." - miroslav from Bookmarklet
