The left-wing progressive mantra has been, for decades, that "too many people" are a drain on any given economy. Of course Margaret Sanger of Planned Parenthood notoriety was the most vocal proponent of that (until James Lee decided to stage his rant in Silver Spring a few months ago).
But now the chickens are coming home to roost. It seems that some nations are beginning to wake up to the mess of their own doing. There is apparently an article in Economist that admits that Japan's declining population is causing the withering of its once-formidable economy. Perhaps they are coming to realize that far from being a drain on economy, people are a resource for healthy economies, as they contribute their labor.
I now post a video from Population Research Institute, that illustrates the interrelation of population and economy. It's actually the first episode in a four-part series; go to the site to see the others. Click here if you can't see embedded video.
