It is also fascinating in the DVD that demographics were able to predict the economic downturn we are in, worldwide. This was not just done in hind sight but was spoken of in the initial documentary and again in this DVD prior to the current economic woes we are experiencing.
DEMOGRAPHIC WINTER PART II, THE DEMOGRAPHIC BOMB: DEMOGRAPHY IS DESTINY
In Part 1 of this film series, experts from many different fields revealed with chilling soberness the dangers facing society and the world?s economies.
Demographic Bomb: demography is destiny (the long awaited part two), illuminates the history of population control, how we came to believe that there are too many people in the world, and how these beliefs became institutionalized.
In Demographic Bomb we interviewed Paul Ehrlich of Stanford University, author of 1968?s The Population Bomb, who popularized the myth of overpopulation and became the father of the modern population-control movement?.
You?ll also hear from Matthew Connelly of Columbia University (author of Fatal Misconception: The Struggle To Control World Population), who reveals how organizations, institutions, governments and the United Nations manipulated and coerced families, evaded political accountability and deceived the poor ? who were targeted for population control -- violating their human rights in the process.
Demographic Bomb shows what happens when countries comprising 80% of the world?s economy have plummeting numbers of workers, consumers and innovators ? leading to falling consumer spending, and not enough young to support the old.
Former Yale Professor of Economics Jennifer Roback Morse and USC?s Professor of Urban Planning and Demography Dowell Myers join with Harvard PhD Nick Eberstadt, Harvard MBA and author of The Great Depression Ahead Harry Dent, and Nobel Prize winning economist Gary Becker to uncover the roots of the crisis that has shaken the world?s economies. Demographic Winter predicted the financial crash of 2008 to within 12 months. Demographic Bomb reveals how it is just the beginning.
These are just some of the voices you'll hear in Demographic Bomb, an essential sequel to Demographic Winter.
