About forty years ago, US government initiated a study on future of globe and implications of population growth and other related issues on economy and politics of the world in order to confront and resolve the explosion of communism ideology and establish a new world order in which a single dominant power with tremendous financial and military muscle would control and regulate relations between the nations. Result of this study was a report which was titled NSSM 200 (National Security Study Memorandum 200) and published for exclusive use by US government policy makers in 1974. This report was made of two parts and each part included different chapters and subsections. Part one was the analytical section while the second part was about policy recommendations.

Chapters of part one of NSSM 200 includes analytical information about world's demographic trend, world's food supplies, minerals and fuel, economic development and population growth and implications of population pressure on national security.

In a part of chapter one, we can read the following:

"The paucity of reliable information on all Asian communist countries and the highly optimistic assumptions concerning China's fertility trends implicit in U.N. medium projections2 argue for disaggregating the less developed countries into centrally planned economies and countries with market economies. Such disaggregation reflects more accurately the burden of rapidly growing populations in most LDCs."

which indicate the main concern of disaggregating LCDs or less developed countries in the n ations with market economy due to population pressure. This matter becomes more clear when the focus turns to NATO and WARSAW member states and the comparison between the two groups of nations:

"NATO and Eastern Europe. In the west, only France and Greece have a policy of increasing population growth -- which the people are successfully disregarding. (In a recent and significant change from traditional positions, however, the French Assembly overwhelmingly endorsed a law not only authorizing general availability of contraceptives but also providing that their cost be borne by the social security system.) Other western NATO members have no policies.3 Most provide some or substantial family planning services. All appear headed toward lower growth rates. In two NATO member countries (West Germany and Luxembourg), annual numbers of deaths already exceed births, yielding a negative natural growth rate.

Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Czechoslovakia have active policies to increase their population growth rates -- despite the reluctance of their people to have larger families. Within the USSR, fertility rates in RSFSR and the republics of Ukraine, Latvia, and Estonia are below replacement level. This situation has prevailed at least since 1969-1970 and, if continued, will eventually lead to negative population growth in these republics. In the United States, average fertility also fell below replacement level in the past two years (1972 and 1973). There is a striking difference, however, in the attitudes toward this demographic development in the two countries. While in the United States the possibility of a stabilized (non-growing) population is generally viewed with favor, in the USSR there is perceptible concern over the low fertility of Slavs and Balts (mostly by Slavs and Balts). The Soviet government, by all indications, is studying the feasibility of increasing their sagging birth rates. The entire matter of fertility-bolstering policies is circumscribed by the relatively high costs of increasing fertility (mainly through increased outlays for consumption goods and services) and the need to avoid the appearance of ethnic discrimination between rapidly and slowly growing nationalities.

U.N. medium projections to the year 2000 show no significant changes in the relative demographic position of the western alliance countries as against eastern Europe and the USSR. The population of the Warsaw Pact countries will remain at 65 percent of the populations of NATO member states. If Turkey is excluded, the Warsaw Pact proportion rises somewhat from 70 percent in 1970 to 73 percent by 2000. This change is not of an order of magnitude that in itself will have important implications for east-west power relations. (Future growth of manpower in NATO and Warsaw Pact nations has not been examined in this Memorandum.)

Of greater potential political and strategic significance are prospective changes in the populations of less developed regions both among themselves and in relation to developed countries."

When it gets to Africa a bit further down, the report speaks about possible growth of strategic and political role of Nigeria in the region. Obviously, Nigeria, as a member of OPEC, can never be remembered without mentioning the richness in oil and even other natural resources and this is also the same in the report. Today, we know that Nigeria is not the only OPEC member that, with all natural resources, is in crisis. Economic disaster and turmoil in there has replaced the relative economic prosperity and stability of 1970's and at this time, there is no prospects for peace and tranquility in sight.
In chapter three we read about world's mineral and fuel reserves and their importance in relations with American future. The "need" for higher oil prices to satisfy the condition for exploitation of more costly oil resources in United States can clearly be seen through remarks in this chapter

"Projections made by the Department of Interior through the year 2000 for those fuel and non-fuel minerals on which the U.S. depends heavily for imports5 support these conclusions on physical resources (see Annex). Proven reserves of many of these minerals appear to be more than adequate to meet the estimated accumulated world demand at 1972 relative prices at least to the end of the century. While petroleum (including natural gas), copper, zinc, and tin are probable exceptions, the extension of economically exploitable reserves as a result of higher prices, as well as substitution and secondary recovery for metals, should avoid long-term supply restrictions. In many cases, the price increases that have taken place since 1972 should be more than sufficient to bring about the necessary extension of reserves.

These conclusions are consistent with a much more extensive study made in 1972 for the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future.6
As regards fossil fuels, that study foresees adequate world reserves for at least the next quarter to half century even without major technological breakthroughs. U.S. reserves of coal and oil shale are adequate well into the next century, although their full exploitation may be limited by environmental and water supply factors. Estimates of the U.S. Geological Survey suggest recoverable oil and gas reserves (assuming sufficiently high prices) to meet domestic demand for another two or three decades, but there is also respectable expert opinion supporting much lower estimates; present oil production is below the peak of 1970 and meets only 70 percent of current demands.7 Nevertheless, the U.S. is in a relatively strong position on fossil fuels compared with the rest of the industrialized world, provided that it takes the time and makes the heavy investments needed to develop domestic alternatives to foreign sources.

In the case of the 19 non-fuel minerals studied by the Commission it was concluded there were sufficient proven reserves of nine to meet cumulative world needs at current relative prices through the year 2020.8 For the ten others9 world proven reserves were considered inadequate. However, it was judged that moderate price increases, recycling and substitution could bridge the estimated gap between supply and requirements."

It is estimated that world's population increases by 3 in every second and currently, it stands around 6.8 billions. We are already seeing the effects of population growth from one side and depletion of resources and food supplies from another side in the world's economy. West has succeeded in bringing the staunch enemy of market economy to its knees by taking advantage of the lessons taken from this and other reports and policies. Crippling the world's leader in centralization of economy became possible by funneling its resources into a huge drain through war in Afghanistan which could have resulted in total destruction and disintegration of the nation that had held its position as a superpower for a very long time in the history but they were able to recover from their desolation and continue as a competitor in the stage of world's politics and economy.

Policies of United States and its closest ally UK since the 1960's and even earlier, have been formed around same kind of recommendations to take over the control of energy and other important resources of the world through political and economic manipulation of other nations. The latest effort in this direction was made in Georgia that the resources in and around it have been a matter of attention for Europeans and Americans since early stages of discovery about a hundred years ago.

After declaration of start of "New World Order" by G.H.W. Bush which American policy makers would like to take full credit for, the need for new policies to satisfy the goal of imposing American superiority in a unipolar world was addressed by a committee through PNAC or Project for New American Century which has outlined these policies to direct The United States of America to the position of leadership of the world based on the experiences of the past and current conditions. Here is what we read as principles of the policies:

" we need to increase defense spending significantly if we are to carry out our global
responsibilities today and modernize our armed forces for the future;
we need to strengthen our ties to democratic allies and to challenge regimes hostile to our interests and values;
we need to promote the cause of political and economic freedom abroad;
we need to accept responsibility for America's unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles. "

The signatures under this short statement of principles include some well known names in US politics and also some others whose names are not so well known by many but from what we have seen, these principles have been the guidelines for American leadership throughout decades after end of WW II even though they have been attributed to US neoconservatives.

From my stand point as an Iranian, policies of Americans and westerners in general, to a great degree, have contributed to the current miseries in the world throughout the decades after WW I and start of neo-colonialism. Selfishness and hidden agendas of western governments under guise of humanitarian and friendly policies towards smaller and weaker nations which have always been revolving around stated goals and objectives has been only for imposition of their own supremacy and control over resources of the world through trickery and dishonest policies. This matter in fact has been one of the reasons behind the break out of economic and food crisis which is currently taken the whole world. The process of globalization that has been initiated in order to prepare the world for entering the era of "new world order" has mostly served to create economic dependency of LDCs to western nations while providing a more profitable source of wealth for the wealthy and at the same time strip working class in developed nations of many current opportunities which are being outsourced one after another.

This clearly indicates that excess greed for power and wealth by a limited number of people has been the most significant motive behind the motions that have resulted in widespread political, social and economic troubles especially in less developed countries with considerable amount of natural resources.
