D.C.―The world’s population of 6.4 billion continues to
grow by more than 70 million people per year—nearly two million every
five days—yet today’s population story is not only about rising
numbers. According to the latest issue of World Watch magazine
it’s also a tale of too many restless young people in some parts
of the world, a larger share of elderly in others, and the economic instabilities
of a globalized world.
