Summary
For at least 650 years, since the time of the Black Plague, the world's population has headed in only one direction: up. But within a few decades the number of people on earth will level off and then will likely decline over an extended period of time. In Fewer, the author explains how and why birthrates and fertility rates are now falling at an alarming rate in countries throughout the world--both modern and less developed. And he explores the major implications--for world politics, the environment, and the international economy--of this momentous shift. Illustrated with 23 clarifying charts
