RESULTS OF POPULATION

DELPHI ROUNDS I and II


In the first round, the panelists were asked to rate some forces that led to the reduction of the world population growth rate from 2.06% in the late 1960s to 1.7% currently and to assess how these forces might change over the next 25 years. They were invited to add forces, which were rated in the second round by the same Scale A below.


Table 1: orders these forces by their historic influence

Table 2: orders them by their future influence.


Scale A

Historic Influence

1 = Very Important
2 = Important
3 = Marginally important
4 = Unimportant
5 = Counter impact

Future Influence

1 = Greatly increasing in importance
2 = Increasing in importance
3 = Remaining the same in importance
4 = Decreasing in importance
5 = No longer a factor, or mixed


Table 1 - The importance of some HISTORIC factors on global population growth



Table 2 - The importance of some forces affecting population over the NEXT 25 years



In the first round, the panelists were asked to rate some forces the could explain why populations rates have remained relatively high in the developing countries and to assess how these forces might change over the next 25 years. They were invited to add forces, which were rated in the second round by the same Scale A above.


Table 3: orders these forces by their historic influence;

Table 4: orders them by their future influence.


Table 3 - Some reasons for high population growth in developing countries


Table 4 - How important will these forces be over the NEXT 25 years?



The panelists were asked to assess new forces and unprecedented events that might influence population growth in the future and suggest and assess additional such forces as to their likelihood of occurrence and impacts over the next 25 years using Scale B.


Table 5:shows the average of the panel's responses about their likelihood;

Table 6: shows their impacts over the next 25 years.


Scale B

Likelihood of occurrence

1 = almost certain
2 = likely
3 = even or 50/50 chance
4 = unlikely
5 = almost impossible

Eventual impact on population within the next 25 years of growth

1 = reduces growth rate by 30% or more
2 = reduces growth rate by 5-30%
3 = no impact
4 = increases growth rate by 5-30%
5 = increases growth rate by 30% or more


Table 5 - Likelihood of occurrence of new forces or unprecedented events that might influence future population growth.



Table 6 - Eventual impact of these new forces and unprecedented events on population growth over the next 25 years.



With the information provided by the panel in round I, we identified two possible future events that were judged to be unlikely, but nevertheless potentially effective in reducing population growth rates, if they were to occur. Both have been considered before and one is the focus of large international programs. Without repeating what has been said and tried many times, we asked for suggestions about novel policy approaches that might be practical, and if implemented, improve the probability of these developments. A distillation of those suggestions follow:


1.4.1 Novel policies that could lead to a social norm of two children per family throughout the majority of the developing world:


  1. Novel policies that could lead to the Vatican's acceptance of contraception without limit:


1.4.3. Other policy areas of your selection and how you would address it:

About The Millennium Project:

The Project was created through a three-year feasibility study funded by the U.S. EPA, UNDP, and UNESCO. This study, to which participated over 200 futurists and scholars from about 50 countries, concluded that the purpose of the Project should be to assist in organizing futures research, up-date and improve global thinking about the future, and make that thinking available through a variety of media for consideration in public policy making, advanced training, public education, and feedback to create cumulative wisdom about potential futures. Today, the Project accomplishes these ends by connecting individuals and institutions around the world to collaborate on research to address important global challenges. The project is not a one-time study of the future, but provides an on-going capacity as a geographically and institutionally dispersed think tank. It was selected among the 100 Best Practices by UN Habitat, among best 7 foresight organizations by US Office of Energy, among "Top Picks for 1997" by Future Survey, and the international journal Technological Forecasting & Social Change annually dedicates an entire issue to the annual State of the Future.

Contraceptives added to the water supply, to conceive potential parents obtain counter active agent.

Without significant reductions in poverty and infant mortality, and increase in women's education and empowerment, these policies would need to be coercive in nature or at least provide strong economic

That whole section is utterly un-friggin-believable!!!

China's population policy and China's program seems to work

Is China still using selective abortion to limit the number of females?

1.4.1 Novel policies that could lead to a social norm of two children per family throughout the majority of the developing world:

Contraceptives added to the water supply, to conceive potential parents obtain counter active agent. (What the ....?)

Family-size tax that increased substantially for every child over two.

and my personal favorite,

Adopt Chinese incentives

Breathtaking.

1.4.3. Other policy areas of your selection and how you would address it:

All nations will have to eventually adopt policies that clearly state the freedom of individual choice.

Does my individual choice kick in before or after I'm forced to drink contraceptized water? Before or after I adopt Chinese incentives?

Policies that emphasizes people to take charge of their lives and reduce dependence on governments.

Somehow I don't see reduction on government dependence as a big theme of socialists.

This turns my stomach. People are so friggin' clueless about the U.N., and all it's various tentacles.

I am wondering if one of the two "problem areas" referred to in the following lead in refers to the section on "Novel policies that could lead to the Vatican's acceptance of contraception without limit". It was not clear to me from what was posted. If so, it seems a shocking interference by the government with religious liberty. The state has absolutely no right to tell the Catholic Church what to believe or teach.

With the information provided by the panel in round I, we identified two possible future events that were judged to be unlikely, but nevertheless potentially effective in reducing population growth rates, if they were to occur. Both have been considered before and one is the focus of large international programs. Without repeating what has been said and tried many times, we asked for suggestions about novel policy approaches that might be practical, and if implemented, improve the probability of these developments.

New international convention of religious leaders - Vatican III - with supporting papal encyclical letter - 1995. *

Bishops call for Vatican III

Thirty-one Roman Catholic bishops, including a cardinal and a senior member of the Roman curia, have signed a petition asking Pope John Paul II to convene a new ecumenical council. Nearly 2,000 others have visited a Madrid-based Web site publicizing the petition and "signed" an online version.

The petition states: "A new Council would help the Catholic Church respond evangelically, in a spirit of dialogue, in [every possible , close] collaboration with the other Christian Churches and Religions, to the grave challenges facing humanity, especially persons in situations of extreme poverty in a rapidly transforming and increasingly more interconnected world.

Novel policies that could lead to the Vatican's acceptance of contraception without limit:

Theological doctrine developed by U.S. Catholic Bishops in support of sustainable development (of Government Statements at UNCED 1992).
Create philosophical shift among powerful within the Roman Catholic Church.



I've been giving this more thought. Considering the policies, collection recipients and political inclinations of American bishops the authors have achieved some success.

Pretty much this work is a re-run of the Rockefeller stuff from the 1960's.

IIRC, President Nixon bought into a chunk of this crap, too, and issued some PDDs to facilitate the conclusions.

Nixon was a real jackass and the Rockefeller family is on the "permanent suspects" list I keep.

Unofficially, PRChina is killing off children left and right. It's not "female babies:"--it's ANY baby after the first one born to a couple.

The couples make the decision to knock off female children because only a SON is obligated to support his parents in their old age.
