Interesting thing is, if current trends continue we will reach peak population mid century and start declining soon after, many developed countries currently have declining population or close to it.
Italy, Cuba, North Macedonia, Portugal, Georgia (the country, not the state) Poland, Hungary, Estonia, Greece all expect decreases up to 15% by 2050
Romania, Albania, Japan, Moldova, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Ukraine, up to 20% down.
Latvia, Lithuania, Bulgaria over 20% down by 2050.
US population growth is the lowest since 1918, I read not long ago that at current birth rates in the US we would be flat or below without net immigration. "They" say that as soon as birth control is widely available in the middle east and sub Saharan Africa world population growth will end as it has in the rest of the world, Frytowns family excluded of course......
