Global Monitor: Speculation on the Future of World Population



It is easy to understand the confusion of many concerning whether the world is overpopulated or under populated when one reads a news report on the increasing number of Sub-Saharan Africans followed by an article on the alarming lack of people in Russia or Eastern Europe.
