It's far better to ease out of this Ponzi scheme of continuous population growth to fuel the economy than to ride it full tilt until it crashes — as it otherwise must.

Relentless increase in human population will destroy much more than just the economy, so we'd better learn to rein it in and live a sustainable lifestyle while we still have some leeway to choose.
