What to Expect When No One is Expecting bookConventional wisdom for the past 50 or so years argues that American and world population growth spell doom for the human race, the world economy, the availability of food stocks and other critical natural resources, the environment and even the Earth itself. In “What to Expect When No One is Expecting”, author Jonathan Last asserts that these underlying assumptions are incorrect. He assesses the consequences of the notable and persistent decreases in population growth, or even a failure of population maintenance, and suggests that they are even more alarming. On this previously recorded live conference call, author Jonathan Last is interviewed by National Review’s Ramesh Ponnuru about his book, and answer questions from the audience.
