Friedman’s new Malthusian text

In: Uncategorized

23 Aug 2008

Tom Friedman, a foreign affairs columnist for the New York Times, is having a new book published in September called Hot, Flat and Crowded. Evidently he argues that America should pursue environmental goals both as a good in itself and because it can help the nation retain its position of world leadership. It sounds like it puts him firmly in the neo-Malthusian camp (for Friedman’s earlier work on this theme see post of 15 April 2007).
