Sometimes my posts provoke more feedback than other times. Those are typically the bad posts. Some other times, no one notices them at all. That seems to be the case with the demographics piece I posted last week on an African-centric humanity by the 22nd century.
I think that this is disappointing. We’re not well-trained to think about demographics, or to think about what its implications might be. But we should try to think about these things. To help you, I list below three recent books that I’ve found very interesting on these matters to chew on:
- The Human Tide: How Population Shaped the Modern World by Paul Morland;
- Empty Planet: The Shock of Global Population Decline by Darrell Bricker and John Ibbitson;
- and Demography: A Very Short Introduction by Sarah Harper.
That’s all for today. Enjoy!
