whoa whoa whoa... so let me get this straight. the massive overcrowding of slums around the world in places like nairobi and mexico city are just fine and dandy?
It's not the number of people in the slums; it's the poverty. People are crammed in pretty tight in Hong Kong, and they're thriving. The answer isn't to turn the poor into Soylent Green. It's to find out how the people in Hong Kong got to be so prosperous, then strive to replicate this.
