Mosher on Population

In an interview on Fox News, Steve Mosher of Population Research Institute (see previous post) reacts to the news that the population of America is increasing, particularly among minorities.

Steve Mosher's major point is that people are an asset not a problem and an increasing birth rate is a sign of stability and optimism within a country. He compares America's positive population growth and economic situation with Europe, where 'they are opening cemeteries and closing maternity hospitals.' It is difficult to listen to as a European but rings horribly true.
