Has this guy Kojm ever been in Indonesia? 99% of everyone who is anyone in the economy ==is== a Chinese. Not a Malayan.
2. Birth rate numbers will need to plummet first.

The growing world population is the greatest threat and will cause permanent poverty everywhere. So, reading what he doesn't say, he is predicting a major war before 2030.
3. By 2030 pigs will have developed wings as well! Obviously

there is no limit to fabrication/manipulation of "facts" nowdays. Who'd thought that the Information-Age would bring that much stupidity, malicious misrepresentation and dumbing-down of vast segments of worlds population?? I for sure did not. "Palestinian People" anyone.....??!
4. Poverty to be eradicated? How ridiculous.

There will always be haves and have nots so that the haves can be considered better than others. How will all these people get jobs that bring them out of poverty? If water and by extension most food will be stressed, how will the price of these important commodities not skyrocket and make up a large portion of the expenditures of this growing "middle class". This whole report sounds fishy.
5. US Intelligence- that's funny
Dave ,   Sf-usa   (08.04.12)
With the demand for food increasing by 50%, and no water available, the 1 billion people living on $1 a day will be reduced by 1/2 creating a 50% reduction in poverty and those lucky people who made it into the middle class will immediately start gobbling meat. If you're rich, you should have a much bigger pile of meat on your plate. If you're an "intelligence agent" you're probably making $150,000 a year and can retire at 52 at full pay allowing you many good years of meat eating while collecting your Govt. checks for just watching T V. and golfing occasionally. Thank you for your service to our country, sir.
