This book presents the views of a well known economist on what problems and prospects the world is likely to face in the year 2050. The central argument of the author is that the population of the world, after a growth from 1176 to 2050 will achieve zero growth by the year 2100. Furthermore, the population of the developing nations will have begun to decline.
