We need more people.

“Because again and again where we see technology implemented to get clean water, where you have stable government, where you have education of women, where you actually have a decent infrastructure across society, the problem is not rising population but actually falling population, as it is in most of Western Europe.”

I use the tags “trade” and “wealth” and “prosperity” for this post because those are exactly what you get when you have more people. You get more specialization of skills, which leads to more competitive advantage, which leads to more trade, trade always leads to wealth, and ultimately the world prospers. It’s simple: we need more people.
