Don't be gloomy about lower birthrate

For a world in which our most severe problem is overpopulation (worse even than climate change, though a major contributor to climate change), a headline suggesting that a lower birthrate is a bad thing ["Drop in births hurts economy," May 8] is at best foolhardy and at worst wicked.

I'll leave it to someone else to remind us of the connection between overpopulation and war.
