Population and Economics: A Bioeconomic Analysis.
Daly, Herman E.
Focus, v2 n2 p15-18 Spr 1992
The notion of optimal population is recast as a problem of optimal scale (population times per capita resource use). Considers bioeconomic limits to scale. Discusses the choice between many people at low resource use per capita versus fewer people at higher resource per capita and suggests a policy that serves both efficiency and sufficiency.
