I just love the heading of this post. It is from John Maynard Keynes who wrote it in his The General Theory (New York, Harcourt Brace and World, 1964), p. 383. I was prompted to check it out when the quote was used in the opening of a post by members of the Economic Society of Singapore about the white paper on population that was passed by the Singapore Parliament on Feb 8 2013.
I think the post sufficiently debunks the myths propagated by the white paper and I hope that the government will be bold enough to take into consideration and not brush it off.
Please do read that post – https://www.evernote.com/shard/s1/sh/d85ef79d-0582-4c59-992a-1e8ecbc22359/eedb54998c8619cc3613d4c30c85afd3 – it is worth your time.
