For our April TNG we will be joined by Patrick Hayes – he will speak on ‘Why we need more people’. He opposes the neo-Malthusian view that the world is over-populated, arguing that humans are not simply consumers but also producers – poverty is not therefore the result of overpopulation but underproduction. As always the speech will be short and the discussion over drinks long. Do rsvp if you are keen to come along.
