Alarming, amusing, disarmingly simple and to-the-point, The Population Fix describes the causes and the effects of America's addiction to population growth and explains how average citizens can regain control over misguided policies and politics.
The Population Fix is an extraordinarily comprehensive analysis of the single most important factor affecting America's future. In plain English, this short volume demonstrates how out-of-control population growth exacerbates every problem facing America today and will necessarily rob future generations of an acceptable quality of life tomorrow.
-Joseph L. Daleiden, author of The American Dream: Can It Survive The 21st Century?
I approached The Population Fix expecting a dry dissertation. Nothing of the sort! This was a fast read. It addresses immigration-legal and illegal-but also, more broadly, the effects of rapid population growth upon Americans' quality of life. The upbeat style and hopeful countenance of the author keep the reader energized. I recommend this book to any American who cares about America's values, America's future, and the lives of future Americans.
-Mark Krikorian, Executive Director Center for Immigration Studies
The Population Fix asks: How many Americans are enough? That's the question every American should ask. This book paints the picture clearly for us; this is what America looks and feels like as we approach one billion residents. One billion! The author methodically pleads for each victim of runaway growth: the working commuter, the family struggling to find affordable housing, the unemployed engineer, the migrant living without protection or dignity, the disappearing farmland and the threatened wildlife. The Population Fix carefully draws out the human story behind our damaging immigration, tax, and legal policies and structures and begs the questions: "Why have we ignored this for the past two decades?" and "What can we do now?"
