Overpopulation & Africa

Sources and further reading:
sites.google.com/view/sourcesoverpopulationandafrica
For most of our history, the human population grew slowly. Until new discoveries brought us more food and made us live longer. In just a hundred years the human population quadrupled.
This led to apocalyptic visions of an overcrowded earth. But the population growth rate actually peaked in the 1960s. Since then, fertility rates have crashed as countries industrialize and develop. World population is now expected to balance out at around 11 billion by the end of the century.
But the big picture conceals the details.
Let us look at one region in particular:
Sub-Saharan Africa. In 2019 it was home to a billion people living in 46 countries. Although its growth rate has slowed down in the last few decades, it is still much higher than in the rest of the world.
While some projections expect around 2.6 billion people others reckon with up to 5 billion by 2100.
Such growth would be a huge challenge for any society. But Sub-Saharan Africa is also the poorest region on earth.
So is Sub-Saharan Africa doomed? And why do the projections vary by 2.4 billion people?

    One of the biggest issues is countries investing in the economy, but in the wrong way. I live in Zimbabwe and China is extracting natural resources for themselves instead of the government owning the mines. If the government owned the mines and were less corrupt then the government would have a lot of money for investment. China is helping us very little, and we don't want them taking our resources, but the government does, because China is paying good money, but only to the government which is, like I said earlier, corrupt. It simply won't work. There's another issue: Getting resources here is hard. Many, many resources here aren't produced close by because there is low amounts of people who can buy it, so the only resources that are cheap is locally farmed. Buying ice cream in like 7 USD because it's shipped from absurd distances. If there were more factories in African nations, we would have much more jobs and much more people who can afford the product. The problem is, companies are too afraid to invest in African nations, because the confidence for a return on investment is low. I wish people would understand us better. Not all of us are starving and poor. In fact, most of us aren't. We're humans too. I get up, I have a morning routine, I go to work like everyone else in the world. I buy groceries every week, and I make plans. Investors assume that we're all too poor, but I've been avoiding saying poor, because we're really not. Generalizing Africa like that is already offensive. Countries like Botswana have a surprisingly good average quality of life, even in the rural areas.

    The problem of this earth is not overpopulation as you call it, it is consumption and capitalism. An ordinary citizen of the western world wastes 1kg in 5kgs of food he/she has access to. Check the per capita carbon footprint of an ordinary American or European. In fact speaking of food, the so-called developing world, these very same poor people you accuse of overpopulation, produce more food than the world can consume, but unfortunately the farmers get ripped off and get near to nothing for their cocoa or bananas, and cant feed their families. These products are underprized so the largely western consumer can buy cheap, then throw into the bin. Simple as that. This whole overpopulation argument is rubbish. You get people living in a three bedroom house in some western capital, having four cars in his carpark, every friday morning throwing away a tonne of food, then turning around and accusing a family of five, sleeping in one mud hut, eating a total of half his family consumption, of overpopulation. Its a complete fraud. Then there is capitalism, poor countries are stuck in a vicious cycle of poverty in many cases because the international trade order is designed to keep them stuck in extractive economies for the benfit of the western economies. These are developmental problems not population problems per se. Check Africa's population density, stop obsessing about its size in simple terms.Then you make a philosophical error, you mistake population size and growths alongside weak economic growth, for having a causal relationship. Population growth has neither a negative nor a positive effect on poverty, it is economic development that has an impact. You can develop an economy even at a time of high population growth. In fact in my country Botswana, it was at the height of of its populaiton growth that it exprienced its greatest economic growth, how do you explain that? Simply because economic growth has nothing to do with populaiton growth. It is the developmental strategy that has a relationship with poverty and of course, the world economic rules which are stacked against developing countries. Including the sponsorship of idiotic leaders in developing countries, by economic interests of the west. But of course your interest is in feeding these silly tropes of your followers fearing a planet over-run by people of a different hue, now we have to run the entire globe castrating males. Its ridiculous.

      Thank you for pointing out the major conceptual, theoretical, epistemological and philosophical issues in this video. I would also add that they present "Africa" as a somewhat isolated system when it comes to its demise. But when it comes to the advances made there, it is "thanks" to the intervention of western countries. As for the old (yet persistent) malthussian argument about overpopulation vs resources, as you correctly pointed out, it is ironic, at the very least, how african countries contribuite with only 1.9 ha/per capita of carbon footprint on average, in contrast with several countries from western Europe, and some from Asia, like Japan and South Korea (presented as an example of success), cosuming up tp 8 ha/per capita. As such, a developing project in the "style" of South Korea would be far more catastrophic than the current demographic trend in South Africa. Sure, all of us who live in third world countries (developing economies for political correctness) would benefit from fairer trade arrangements, developing production forces to comply with the needs of our populations, having redistribution of wealth as the main goal, instead of its accumulation. Unfortunately though, the latest has become "common sense".

      Basically, Africa has a lot of problems, and they're not gonna be solved overnight. The best way to help Third World countries in Africa is by offering trading opportunities rather than aid that drives a dependency culture that mainly benefits a few corrupt and despotic rulers who turn a blind eye to their people's suffering.

      @Chicken on a Raft I'm sorry you had a bad experience with some people. It seems you have a lot of issues, it's sad however that you use those experiences to justify your racism/sexism. There are horrible people that are white and horrible people that are black. There are bad neighbourhoods that have a lot of black ppl and bad neighbourhoods that have a lot of white people. There are shitty man and shitty women. But generalizing isn't helping and it's honestly pretty sad. I've met people from lots of different nationalities, I've met people of the same ethnicity that where great and some that where bad. I've met great men and horrible men, same for women. So no I don't believe these things because I've been told them. I just look at it logically and see people as people and people have flaws. But your generalizations don't seem to be helping you and you come accros as a very hatefull person, I wanted to have a discussion about african population growth and your critique of kurzgesagt, yet you've used a bunch of bad fate arguments to totally derail the conversation. I took the bait, but I'm done. I suggest you look within yourself to see why you feel this way, cause it honestly doesn't seem healthy, especially you're attitude towards women could lead to a lot of loneliness. I get the feeling a woman has hurt you deeply, and I feel sorry for you, but hating all women is not a healthy solution to deal with that pain. Try talking with a proffesional about it if you have to. Good luck, peace

The color is neither the red specified in the official Italian flag, nor the orange in the official Irish flag. Therefore one might be justified to compare the flag in the video to the Italian flag.

    Fun Fact: my geography teacher told me this to speak about the flaws of top-down aid. Some field workers were deployed in Africa, but didn’t know how to speak the language where they were deployed. The field first goal was to introduce contraceptives to the people in the village, not only to curve population but also HIV/AIDS in the area. To show how to use it, they did the banana-condom demonstration. The workers did this, but a few weeks later, HIV/AIDS hadn’t changed, in-fact, it had increased. They didn’t know why, it should have decreased. It was only when a field worker saw a basket of bananas with condoms to figure out the problem. The locals didn’t know that the banana was an analogy, because they didn’t know the language, so they thought placing condoms on bananas helped with AIDS/HIV. Luckily, the field workers corrected this and the HIV/AIDS rate plummeted.

      @banana it’s racist because it’s used by right-wingers to blame global hunger & poverty on black & brown people. It’s a capitalist lie because in reality we have enough resources to secure everyone with food, shelter, & more. But those resources aren’t dirtributed evenly because of capitalism

    The fertility rate of a population does not depend only on healthcare and economic welfare, though these are important factors. In Eastern Europe and far east Asia, some.countries have very low GDP per capita and very low fertility rate. In Soviet Union, the fertility rate was sinking when the economy and life expectancy were sinking too. On the opposite some countries had a recent increase of their fertility rate despite economic growth (Egypt, Nigeria...). The gap between countries regarding fertility rates strongly depends on cultural and political factors. Thank you for this video.

    When Europe had its population boom it went out and conquered the world for resources. China , India, Japan,The US all had population booms and thereafter they all became as we know them today. America was a slum before the Industrial Age. Why should Africa be any different? Does the white West really want African nations to grow more powerful and self sufficient and become competitors ? The ppl to become educated and understand how France is sucking hundreds of millions of Africans dry as the basis of the French economy? As an American we as black ppl can at least learn the truth...... and fight to force the large society for which we are apart of to correct itself. America’s diverters allows that because every group had to fight discrimination at some point. My heart goes out to ppl who are born in place where such freedoms do not exist. And ppl are allowed to remain ignorant to the benefit of the rich and educated. The meek will inherit the Earth

    My grandma was born in the late 1920s/early 1930s, at the time life was hard for an average Sarawakian (which is now a part of Malaysia). She didn't have proper education, married my grandfather and had four children. My dad is the 3rd offsprings, he received education only up to high school. He was poor so he couldn't continue his study. I was born in the year 2000, I have 4 sibling and I'm the youngest of them. I'm now on my third year of higher education for degree holder. Time has changed, but I do think it will take another 30 - 50 years for Malaysia to be a major power in the world, now we are a growing economy country, quite modest on the ranking but we would need more time to punch it up to utilise our asset.

      If one doesn't have money for, say, a plane ticket and a visa, one cannot move to another country. If one does not have access to education, one cannot succeed in a new country. If Africa* is given a chance to improve its economy and infrastructure, people may have access to those resources, but a move would probably become unnecessary. The reality is, we have the material resources to take care of everyone right now. The global economy fails to distribute those resources equitably and fairly, and this is why so many people suffer. No one needs to move anywhere, or "move back" anywhere. We need to be kinder to each other and we need to develop sustainable lifestyles. Overpopulation is a myth. *As stated in the video, Africa is a massive place and is not a monolith in its peoples' needs and capabilities.

    I really hate "average life expectancy" numbers because they take into account people who die as children. It's a useful metric for researchers, but doesn't reflect how old someone can expect to live assuming they reach adulthood.
