In the group; eight adults with seven children ... with another child on the way to one of the couples. Having only one ourselves, feel like we're letting the side down ... but more seriously, I do worry just were it's all leading us and never cease to be amazed that 'population size' seems to be a completely taboo subject in the western developed world. I've yet to hear a really compelling argument as to why we need 'population growth' to succeed economically (and more importantly, socially) yet it seems to be simply accepted as a given?
Population turnover - age profile/mix etc. - I can accept as a fairly crucial component of success, but why small can't be successful I just don't know.
