Population Pessimists are Wrong

The population pessimists have reared their heads again in regards countries.  For different reason they have pointed to the populations  high Mexico, China and Egypt and Malthusian traps.  As always the population pessimists are wrong. 

It is almost impossible for a country to be over populated if the world is not over populated.  A lot of people can live on a little piece of land.  Food production is what takes land and food can be imported. Julian Simon was right and still is.
