  Julian Lincoln Simon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Julian Lincoln Simon (February 12, 1932–February 8, 1998) was professor of business administration at the University of Maryland and a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute.
Simon was one of the founders of free-market environmentalism.
Simon was also the first to suggest that airlines should provide rewards for travelers to give up their seats on overbooked flights (a practice popularly known as "bumping"), rather than arbitrarily taking certain passengers off the plane.

Simon is best known as the skeptic and provocateur who, more than any other single person, began to force a fundamental rethinking of the deeply ingrained Malthusian pessimism about world population, global resources, and the geo-environment.
Simon was brilliant, and he could be fierce, but he was also a kind and generous man, and artifice was utterly alien to his nature.
Julian L. Simon was born in 1932 in Newark, New Jersey, the grandson of immigrants.

Simon amasses the work of 54 different scholars in his effort to point up the obvious; that the health of mankind is improving under a world increasingly devoted to free markets.
It isn't Simon or Lomborg who are wrong, it is the misguided notion of people who desire and need a continuation of a consistent worldview, one that assures their continuing validation as virtuous, caring souls.
The purpose of Simon and his collaborators was to present a 'scorecard' on the progress of humanity against historical trends and to predict the level of our future health and prosperity (he specifically declines to become involved in predicting our happiness).

Julian Lincoln Simon was professor of business administration at the University of Maryland and a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute.
In it, Simon challenged the notion of a pending Malthusian catastrophe — that an increase in population has negative economic consequences; that population is a drain on natural resources; and that we stand at risk of running out of resources through over-consumption.
Simon was also the first to suggest that airlines should provide rewards for travelers to give up their seats on overbooked airlines rather than arbitrarily keep certain passengers off the plane.

One of Julian Simon's last works-in-progress--cut short just before completion by his death in early 1998--The Great Breakthrough and Its Cause explores the question of why human progress accelerated in Western Europe starting around 1750.
Simon answers this question by arguing persuasively that the total quantity of humanity--and the nexus of human numbers with technology--has been the main driving force behind what he calls "Sudden Modern Progress." Further, he continues, if population numbers had risen more rapidly than they did, the "Great Breakthrough" would have occurred earlier.
The late Julian Simon was most recently Professor of Business Administration, University of Maryland, College Park.

 Amazon.com: The Economic Consequences of Immigration : Second Edition: Books: Julian Lincoln Simon   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Updated to reflect Simon's most recent work on immigration and with a new foreword by the author of Fresh Blood: The New American Immigrants, this theoretical, empirical study systematically examines each of the significant economic mechanisms by which immigrants affect natives.
In Simon's inimitable style--both analytically sophisticated and accessible--The Economic Consequences of Immigration debunks many of the suppositions still at large, demonstrating that immigrants displace fewer jobs than they create, are better educated than the majority of U.S. workers, and are no more of a drain on the welfare system than the general population.
This important book is ideal for courses on labor and population and is useful as a reference book to researchers and journalists examining the many issues surrounding immigration.

In addition to infant mortality, we do not know the percentage of women in the ancient world who died (thus removing them from the pool of females able to bear further children) while giving birth.
