Population And The American Future

The Report Of The Commission On Population Growth
And The American Future

John D. Rockefeller 3rd, Chairman
March 27, 1972

One of the most serious challenges to human destiny in the last third of this century will be the growth of the population. Whether manís response to that challenge will be a cause for pride or for despair in the year 2000 will depend very much on what we do today. If we now begin our work in an appropriate manner, and if we continue to devote a considerable amount of attention and energy to this problem, then mankind will be able to surmount this challenge as it has surmounted so many during the long march of civilization.
