Videos : Family Decay, Baby Crunch, Baby Drought, Religious, Political and Racial Views - Different Views from Great Economists, Demographers and Futurologists
What we believe is probably and usually wrong !
Common Sense and Public Opinion are not always right. Great Philosophers have taught us that an idea shared by billions of people doesn't have to be right.. Billions or Trillions of people, or 99% of people may believe what is wrong, like in primitive societes or tribes.
Great Economists like Dr Jeffrey Sachs from the Earth Institute at Columbia University give us a different view of History, Politics and Futurology. This strongly contradicts what people in the street or subway believe. Mr Sachs is my favorite Economist, I constantly have to look for his videos and articles. ( because I lose them, and Search Engines are not perfect )
The Population Explosion does exist in backward nations, but that is changing and in advanced nations the situation may be the opposite as I study here :
Old Ageing and Dying Nations : The Decay of Great Nations of Europe and Asia - Too Old to Compete - Will Babies save America ??
So you see that Great Demographers worry about what happens in the most developped nations.
Some Christians because of Religion Convictions worry about abortions, low birth, etc ...
Some Racists also complain of low birth rates of the "Superior Race" ....
Pro-Life sites are very worried by the Baby Crunch and Family Decay.
The Anti-Obamas dislike the Demographies of our time.
We see this even in Liberal, Democrat, ProChoice and proObama sites.
