Notable Papers and Articles

The NPG Forum series has for many years been an effective method for us to bring interesting perspectives concerning the connection between population growth and other national issues to our members, our nation’s political leaders, and other interested parties. Our papers have covered topics ranging from environmental degradation and resource depletion to social security reform and a steady-state economy. Our Forum papers are written by some of the leading scholars in the various fields we study.

In order to draw much-needed attention to additional resources, NPG will now begin to highlight the work of other parties in our new Notable Papers and Articles section. We feel these papers and articles provide additional perspectives on the issues we study here at NPG. We are happy to be able to distribute them to a broader readership.

Papers other than NPG Policy Statement and Position Papers represent ideas that we believe should be disseminated but do not necessarily represent the views of NPG.

Please watch our website for periodic updates. We welcome your feedback on these articles and encourage suggestions for future postings.
