my comment being...

I wonder if this is the answer to overpopulation?

Perhaps I'm looking at this wrong...but it appears to me that the "First
World ' nations have excessive population growth under control. At the very

greater than in "first world" ones...

This fertility decrease (so I've heard) has been attributed to a higher
standard of living......
