  1. The environmental secretary’s argument on what such push and pull factors promote economic growth are distorted. His examples of China and India are logically flawed, for such nations are experiencing some of the highest levels of poverty, some of the most daunting unemployment rate figures, and increased cases of human trafficking. It seems as if such “policies” that are thought to promote high birth rates focus solely on incurring financial gain rather than addressing the social and economic needs of its country’s population.

    Behind this governmental official’s smirk I feel is an individual who does not understand the needs of the people he has a duty of serving. If economic growth is a topic that is of such importance to the current administration, then perhaps the power of the purse should be further scrutinized.
