FAIR Media Director Links Overpopulation and Surplus of Labor

http://www.steinreport.com/archives/overpopulation_devaluing_unskilled_labor.html

I came across the above-linked op-ed piece yesterday, which appeared in “The Dan Stein Report.”  Dan Stein is president of FAIR, the Federation for American Immigration Reform, of which I’m a member.  Ira Mehlman, author of this piece, is their media director. 

I bring this to your attention because it’s a rare example of someone making a direct connection between overpopulation and a growing surplus of labor.  His focus is on unskilled labor, but the fact that any such linkage is made by anyone is remarkable, since it flies in the face of economic dogma.  The world may not wait for economists to come up with the solutions.  The field of economics had better start looking into the economic relationships that are increasingly evident to the layman, or they risk becoming completely irrelevant.
