I blogged the following discussion of this book on the Migrants Rights Network website at wwwmigrantsrightsorgukIt is increasingly clear that the coalition government’s immigration policies are going to be informed by the population pessimism which regards growth at the level of the ONS’s upper predictions of 70 million people by 2031 as the very worst fate that could befall the United Kingdom Much of the discussion around the announcement of a cap on third country migrant numbers made by the Home Secretary on 28th June is in line with the gloomy thinking that people always means bad news and draconian measures are justified to bring about a reversal of trendsWhilst the negative take on population figures has been contested by social policy analysts working in such bodies as ippr and Centre Forum the sheer force of Malthusian commonsense continues to rule the roost amongst politicians and tabloid headline writersThat might change with the public of a splendid new book by the Guardian’s Greenwash columnist Fred Pearce Peopleuake Mass Migration Ageing Nations and the Coming Population Crash goes at the argument full tilt and from just about every possible angle He looks at the work of the Reverend Bob Malthus as it moved through its various stages of gloomy population punditry training manual for colonial administrators and the foundations for the distasteful ideology of eugenics shows just how unreliable it has always been as a predictor of the outcomes of population rise The UK illustrates the error in this type of thinking as clearly as anything else In 1821 the population of Britain was a mere 20 million and this has risen by 300% in the 190 years since to our present 61 million But rather than the famine and pestilence predicted by Malthus this same period has seen encouraging moves away from the conditions of epidemic disease the appalling congestion of the cities of the early industrial revolution better planned housing and health care and social amenities which have all tended to the improvement of human life and the increase of happinessPearce argues that rather than bang on about large numbers we should be looking at the likely scenarios which be worked out in the years ahead which will be affected by concentrations or the dispersal of populations He points out that although the world population will continue to rise over the next few decades reaching around 9 billion in 2040 most of this will arise from an a decline in the rate of death rather than the arrival of new people Our societies are filling up principally with people who are living longer and growing greyer A decline in birth rates long noted in the countries of the developed world but increasingly apparent in China India and other emerging regions means that the generation alive in 2040 will be living on the cusp of a prolonged period of human history during which people die each year than are born For Pearce this is the really significant fact which should be bearing down on our policy making in today’s work as a we plan for a transitional period of adjustment as we work out the social relations needed to sustain civilised life in what will be older but also peaceful and hopefully wiser societiesIn this scenario immigration is not a phenomenon we need to bear down on but a useful resource which will ensure that youthful energy and innovation finds its place in the parts of the world where smooth foreheads and clear sighted eyes are becoming increasingly scarce There are many counterfactuals stacking up against the population pessimists and which challenge the idea that downward pressure now needs to be brought to bear on levels of migration They suggest that better principles for managing migration will be found in the empowerment of migrants rather than increases in coercive controls If we are going to need to tap into the resources of the young the energetic the brightest and the most imaginative to meet the demands of this transitional period of human history we should start to do that now by drawing them and the them increasingly being migrants into the policy discussion rather than leave it until too much later

Fred Pearce's optimistic outlook is the perfect antidote to the relentless Malthusian world view of immiment plague pestilence and famine There really are reasons to be cheerful if challenges are addressed and not left to become self fulfilling prophesies of the doomsayers The book doesn't fight shy of the massive issues that need to be confronted feticide eugenics euthansia mass migration immigration environmental impact wealth polarisation and much besides But just as Malthus couldn't see how the world could sustain people back in the 1800s the same blinkered thinking threatens to condemn efforts to lift millions of people out of poverty and to abandon them to their fate Pearce's view is that the demographic timebomb may yet be defused by falling birthrates ageing populations and the changing role of women around the world
