Julian Simon was professor of Business Administration at the UniversityofMaryland and a Senior Fellow at the CatoInstitute. He authored of many books and quite a few articles, mostly on economic subjects. He is best known for his work on population, natural resources, and immigration. His book 'TheUltimateResource,' later reissued as 'TheUltimateResource2,' is a massive, fact-heavy assault on the conventional wisdom of population growth and resource consumption. In it, Simon challenged the neo-Malthusian notion 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.
