Let’s Talk About It: Population Decline

November 16, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm

Free and open to the public!

Do you miss our Leader Lunch/Roundtable talks? Good news: we’ve got a replacement! Congenial sessions will again focus on thought-provoking subjects, and as always, there will be links so you can access the readings the preceding week. (And, yes, you can bring your lunch.) There’s so much to talk about…and we will!

This Week’s Questions

What are your thoughts about the expected decline in population? Can and should that trend be reversed and how? Who and how should we control that trajectory?

‘Why U.S. Population Growth Is Collapsing: A Country Grows or Shrinks in Three Ways’ by Derek Thompson – The Atlantic

‘U.S. Population Growth Has Nearly Flatlined. Is That So Bad?’ by Spencer Bokat-Lindell – The New York Times
