The UK's economic recovery will partly depend on whether Bojo's bad Brexit deal is fully implemented or not.

At the moment, there are no checks on imported goods for fear of creating food shortages and panic buying. Equally, extra paperwork for exports is crippling UK-based suppliers.

Little is being done to address this because the focus is on Covid. Soon it will be too late anyway.

I dunno about elephants but I can certainly spot the Malthusian in the room. There's always at least one in any HYS with the slightest connection to the economy or the environment. In fact, they're multiplying so fast, I worry about the Social Media ecosystem's ability to cope with the ever-increasing quantity of Malthusianism... ;-)

The old Malthusian argument - it has never been proven right in the just over 200 years since first published.

It never took into account production efficiency, technical improvement/inventions or product substitution but apart from that it was a good theory!

Overconsumption is arguably more of an issue than overpopulation. Americans and Canadians produce far more unrecycled waste per capita than most other countries, especially those which are apparently causing the climate crisis by being 'too populated' such as South Asian and African nations. Most of our air-travel pollution is caused by a tiny percentage of very frequent fliers or private planes.

Infinite growth cannot be achieved, but growth for millions of years is not unfeasible, which is a lot longer than the any human society thinks in terms of. The Sun will last for billions of years yet, the earth has vast resources, where we run low on rare minerals, technology will step in to utilize those that are more abundant (or extract them from moons, asteroids and other planets).

No one wants to admit the reality. There are too many humans on this planet and the uncontrolled birth rate in some cultures is not helping.
