Those who worried about the population bomb may worry a little bit less, but fans of Julian Simon shouldn't be so pleased. This month's lead essay by Bryan Caplan examines the problem of world population with a framework strongly inspired by the late Professor Simon. Caplan recommends several policy initiatives that will encourage the growth at least of the American population while protecting individual rights and respecting individual choices.
Caplan's views here, as elsewhere in his work, are iconoclastic. We've invited a distinguished panel to discuss them over the course of the month: Economist Betsey Stevenson of the Wharton School, Columbia University historian Matthew Connelly, and historical economist Gregory Clark of UC Davis. Each will address Caplan's argument using a range of methodological tools and with somewhat different political values.
