Population is the key

“Population is key. If you don’t take care of population, schools can’t cope, hospitals can’t cope, there’s not enough housing – there’s nothing you can do to have economic development.”
Peter Ogunjuyigbe, a demographer in Nigeria, where women have an average of more than five children.  The quote is taken from the New York Times today. However the message is true whether you are talking about Hadleigh, Babergh or the world at large. It’s all about housing, jobs and infrastructure and the driver is population. Otherwise we open the doors to the four horsemen of the Apocalypse.
