Is 300 million people a good thing?

Michael Mandel

The U.S. is about to hit 300 million people. In my latest online piece, I ask:

But here are a couple of questions for you to ponder as the U.S. gets closer to the big 300: Is it coincidence that the three countries with the largest populations also have the most dynamic economies in the world? And is it coincidence that the most innovative major industrialized country, the U.S., also has the fastest growing population and the most young people?

No, it's not a coincidence...take a look at the piece.
