Well for a start a question – what is the point of more population growth?
Cornwall has seen dramatic population growth – had it made everyone happier, better off?
And, what about the impact of more population growth?
As for the alleged benefits – Portes appears not to recognise that there is no justification for austerity – bumping up the population is a very short termist Ponzi approach.
Sure Danny Dorling can cite various issues and problems but they are actually irrelevant when it comes to the population issue.
And yes people may enjoy visiting Barcelona that does not mean they support living at a higher density!
Sorry folks if you really think population growth is a good idea get real – its not sustainable or desirable.
