CSE G Acton- Population control

by Joe Calhoun

Samuel Gregg of the Acton Institute explains that the zero-sum game myth is an economic fallacy. It is based on a static view of wealth. In market economies, exchange is positive sum. Michael Miller, also of the Acton institute, explains this myth has led to disastrous population control policies. The Economist magazine has described the outcome of these policies as “gendercide.” In many cultures there is a male preference, thus, baby girls are more likely to be aborted leading to an imbalance of men and women. Population growth is good for economic growth because the human mind is the source of wealth. Thus, people are the economic solution, not the problem.
