Population and the American Predicament: The Case Against Complacency.
Holdren, John P.
The goals of the Caltech Population Program are to increase understanding of the interrelationships between population growth and socioeconomic and cultural patterns throughout the world and to communicate this understanding. This series of occasional papers is one step in the process of communicating research results. The papers deal primarily with problems of population growth and the interaction of population change with such variables as resources, food supply, environment, urbanization, employment, economic development, and social and cultural values. This fourth paper in the series concentrates on the consequences of population growth in the United States. The author presents the position that the American population should be stabilized or even reduced. Reasons for this belief, as well as possible methods and their liabilities, are discussed. (LS)
