Population growth is path to sa’s prosperity

Brian Cunningham, writing for SA’s The Advertiser on the 17th of February, ignores the environmental reality of population growth. He argues that increasing population growth increases wealth by expanding the economy, providing a bigger local market and increasing the skills base. Bob Couch, of Marino, reminds hims of this in his Letter to the Editor.
