Greece had protests over the years against austerity measures. Some protests were violent leading to death of people. European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund wanted Greek Parliament to pass a package of new austerity measures to lend 170 billion dollars to Greece. Greek Parliament obliged. Protests in Greece have turned more violent. Buildings are set on fire.
Fools say population is a problem.
Greater fools agree with them.
Wise people say Indiaâ€™s population growth is a demographic dividend.
Indiaâ€™s population was 55 crores in 1971. Many predicted dire consequences if the population growth is not stopped.
Now in 2010 Indiaâ€™s population is around 110 crores. The country is thriving. The prophets of doom have been proved wrong.
