April 28, 2009 – Hour 2

Marc and his guests discuss whether the dream of a sustainable future will require more limits on population growth. What would a population controlled future look like? Is it possible to enforce limits on population growth in a fair and equitable way? What other matters–poverty, education, innovation in governance–will play a role in the future well-being of our society?
