What is the optimum human population size for our planet?


What is the optimum human population size for our planet? Daily et al.(1994) said that the optimum population size is 2 billion. He claims that this number will allow a large population to have "exciting cities and still maintain substantial tracts of wilderness for the enjoyment of outdoor enthusiasts." The United Nations stated, "Goverments are beoming increasingly concerned with the consquences of population trends and international migration. Furthermore, goverment are now more inclined to veiw population as a legimate are for goverment actions and act upon these concerns by formulating and implementing politics that address population issues." (Population Newsletter 2007).

What are your thoughts on the passage above? Do you think the U.S should develop a population policy? Why or why not? If so, what should it entail? If not, are there any alternative measures the could be implemented to curb population growth?
