ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "Standing Room Only: The Challenge of Over-Population," by Karl Sax. Sax has written a good book on what seems to him, and me, and a few other people, a tremendously important subject. The population of the world is increasing by at least 70,000 persons per day, or 25 million per year. This is a phenomenon unique in. all the annals of time. At present, the fastest-growing countries are doubling their population every 25 years, the slowest, with a few unimportant exceptions, every 70 years.
