9781412807135: Population Control: Real Costs, Illusory Benefits

For over half a century, policymakers committed to population control have perpetrated a gigantic, costly, and inhumane fraud upon the human race. They have robbed people of the developing countries of their progeny and the people of the developed world of their pocketbooks. Determined to stop population growth at all costs, those Mosher calls "population controllers" have abused women, targeted racial and religious minorities, undermined primary health care programs, and encouraged dictatorial actions if not dictatorship. They have skewed the foreign aid programs of the United States and other developed countries in an anti-natal direction, corrupted dozens of well-intentioned nongovernmental organizations, and impoverished authentic development programs. Blinded by zealotry, they have even embraced the most brutal birth control campaign in history: China's infamous one-child policy, with all its attendant horrors.

There is no workable demographic definition of "overpopulation." Those who argue for its premises conjure up images of poverty--low incomes, poor health, unemployment, malnutrition, overcrowded housing to justify anti-natal programs. The irony is that such policies have in many ways caused what they predicted--a world which is poorer materially, less diverse culturally, less advanced economically, and plagued by disease. The population controllers have not only studiously ignored mounting evidence of their multiple failures; they have avoided the biggest story of them all. Fertility rates are in free fall around the globe.

Movements with billions of dollars at their disposal, not to mention thousands of paid advocates, do not go quietly to their graves. Moreover, many in the movement are not content to merely achieve zero population growth, they want to see negative population numbers. In their view, our current population should be reduced to one or two billion or so. Such a goal would keep these interest groups fully employed. It would also have dangerous consequences for a global environment.

About the Author :

Steven W. Mosher is president of Population Research Institute and is recognized as one of the leading authorities on population studies. He is the author of several books and articles, including A Mother’s Ordeal: One Woman’s Fight against China’s One-Child Policy; Journey to the Forbidden China; and Broken Earth: The Rural Chinese. In addition to making appearances on Good Morning America, 60 Minutes, and CNN News, his work has appeared in theWall Street Journal, the NewRepublic, and National Review.

Review :

“In Population Control, Mr. Mosher incisively explores the history and effects of the population control movement from a pro-people perspective, based on the belief that because each person has unique value, more people means more for all of us – more economic production, more potential for artisitic and scientific achievement, more innovation. . . .his latest book should be read by all those who want to know why thriving human populations are reasons to rejoice rather than fear.”

— Joseph A. D’Agostino, The Washington Times

“History repeats itself, and that’s especially true of financial history. In Separating Fools From Their Money, Scott B. Macdonald and Jane E. Hughes give a lively and informative account of the very checkered past of Wall Street. From the Panic of 1792 to the dot-com bust, the authors find fascinating patterns in the way American financial crises unfold and are resolved. They identify four recurring themes: the existence of speculators with influence and political connections; the cyclical nature of boom and bust, scandal and reform, the larger-than-life personalities displayed by the major players; and the fervent faith in the market that leads investors into particularly disastrous courses.”

BizEd Magazine

“The Degradation Of The Academic Dogma is a signal work of scholarship and deserves the widest possible readership among academicians, scholars, politicians, and the general public.”

Wisconsin Bookwatch

“In summary, Mosher’s book is an eye-opening, informative educational tool that is worth a close examination by those who want to learn what is needed to reverse the rapid decline in population. Mosher argues that the United States government must stop funding population control measures. What the West needs to focus on is reversing the demographic suicide now taking place.”

—Susan Fani, Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights

Population Control: Real Costs, Illusory Benefits should be read at the Department of Health and Human Services. Author Steven Mosher shows that the conventional wisdom-more people means more poverty-is wrong.”

—Marvin Olasky, 

"Countries like France and Japan became rich before they grew old. Now much of the developing world is growing old before it before it becomes rich, due primarily rapid declines in birthrates that are unprecedented in human demographic history. Mosher correctly shows how the debate over reproductive rights and population control has to come terms with a world in which population growth is decelerating, and what remains will come mostly from increases in the ranks of the elderly."

—Phillip Longman, Author: The Empty Cradle: How Falling Birthrates Threaten World Prosperity. Senior Fellow, New America Foundation.
