Fantastic! Now if we can get a net negative "growth" for some years, maybe infrastructure and food supply can catch up, prices drop and lifestyle improve. But this needs governments to stop frivolous spending!.

Golden, Colorado, USA
In the 21st century, human overpopulation continues to be the most ignored, suppressed and avoided issue of our time. World leaders and religions dodge every discussion pertaining to its onslaught in the face of human struggles at epic levels. With our planet screaming its accelerating anguish via contaminated oceans, poisoned soils and polluted atmosphere---we indifferently add 80 million of ourselves annually and one billion more every 12 years. Our 7.3 billion numbers wreak havoc on the rest of the natural world as we cause extinction rates of other creatures at over 100 daily and hundreds of thousands by mid century. At some point, we face catastrophic climate destabilization, lack of water and arable land to grow food as well as loss of oil energy to drive our civilizations. When the final drivers descend on our species, Mother Nature won’t be kind or forgiving. Frosty Wooldridge, 6 continent world bicycle traveler

Fantastic news, this decline and further potential decline in the next few years to come will drive the crazy overvalued property market prices down and also will correct the employment market with over supply of candidates in most of the occupations. The state does not have enough infrastructure in place to coop with the previous growth projections of population by 2020.
