War, famine and pestilence have been the traditional ones.
Karsten, Hans Rosling on TED is probably the most wonderful, provocative and stunning intellectual entertainment in the world for years to come!! The first 5 minutes of the first video gives you an answer to your question. http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/hans_rosling_shows_the_best_stats_you_ve_ever_seen.htmlhttp://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/hans_rosling_reveals_new_insights_on_poverty.html

Andriod Sex Bots / Media would be a powerful combination for effective population control .. If we had robots that were "waay better in the sack" compared to any human, coupled with a Media Blitzkrieg Bombardment of notions in support of human to android contact. Humans would eventually fore-go human on human contact in lieu of the " way more awesomer" human to android contact.If these robots were better, easier, cheaper and mass produced for everyone, population control would be more effective.If we stopped fkn each other and started fkn androids, the chances of having a baby would be eliminated. Within a generation or two after implementing this type of paradigm we would notice considerable or drastic population reduction.Feel free to check out a polka song I wrote about Robot sex bots on facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=457622168484 [nofollow]
Our net population would have fallen if it were not for immigration.
It's a daunting concept, but we're likely going to need some sort of population control eventually.What about the idea of offering people cash incentives to get sterilised? And perhaps charge parents who want to have large families to pay for the sterilisations of the others. I guess that might increase the spread of std's from people thinking they no longer need condoms though. Any other ideas?
We need 2.1 to provide sufficient resources for an ever more ageing population.
Many developed northern European populations are actually in decline and are causing considerable concern.
As a matter of fact, we already have a very efficient answer for the problem of overpopulation, it's called Nuclear War.
