View at YouTube

Economist Gale Pooley challenges the conventional wisdom that we are using up our resources and heading towards what economist Paul Ehrlich called “The Population Bomb.” Jay Richards interviews Dr. Pooley, Professor of Economics at BYU-Hawaii, about the myth of economic scarcity. In fact, more people equals more abundance, not less. While every person born adds another mouth to feed, it also adds two hands and trillions of brain cells.
