We need a clear understanding of overpopulation so the economy can recover.

Well the debate over overpopulation causing harm to Earth and this stalling Capitalism's ability to grow an economy with supply side expansion and or Quality of Life expansion is now reaching a fevered pitch in debate between the liberal factions of society . THIS IS GOOD FOR GETTING THIS OUT INTO THE OPEN AND SOLVING IT .
Here is one liberal news agency arguing against the ideology that there are too many people on the planet ....

About That Overpopulation Problem

And then there are these arguments ....

But we need to debate these factions that are part of the Environmental society that are controlling through our Lobbying networks the Policy making and financial credit system that can help create jobs and a robust economic system that would promote Higher quality of life .

  • Jan 13 2013: The real culprit (among many),
    is the population of pollution and the pollution of populations of all kinds.

    It isn't simply the population of humans.
    It is the management of our resources, or rather the mis-management of them, and they are in the wrong hands.
    They belong to every living thing on earth because every living thing on earth needs them, simply by being in existence.
    They need to be managed by the world rather than by corporations, countries or individuals.
    • Jan 13 2013: the plutocracy that is now in control internationally through the multi national corps that lobby governments and control the financial system as we saw the 2 big 2 fail culture bail themselves out with world tax payers monies and is still going on shows us that this will never change and the consequences are going to be disastrous it looks like .
      • Jan 14 2013: Agreed.
        But at some point something bigger is going to collapse.
        How humans respond will be of utmost importance.
        The good thing is that it will be a very clear moment or opportunity,
        to extricate ourselves from their rule by not doing one thing they say,
        command, direct, order or threaten us/US with.
        That will set the tempo and direction to freedom, methinks, wishes and dreams of.
