I recently stumbled upon these well-produced short videos that explain some of the basic issues of poverty as they relate to population. They are from the Population Research Institute (PRI), which is the nonprofit organization behind OverpopulationIsAMyth.com. PRI states "this myth [of overpopulation] has caused human rights abuses around the world, forced population control, denied medicines to the poor, and targeted attacks on ethnic minorities and women." While I am not very familiar with this organization, I am familiar with much of the research they present below. And certainly I agree with this organization's claim that "people are the most valuable resource on the planet, the one resource we cannot do without."
If you have any interest in poverty alleviation, then I think you should watch these two short pieces. There are many thought-provoking statements made in them, which are explained further on their site.
The first piece is about poverty and population. Further information about the statistics cited is online.
In this piece, PRI explores the global fertility rate and why developed nations are actually at risk with low fertility rates. More information can be found here.
Definitely something to think about!
