IN RESPONSE to Terry Banfield’s reasons for world poverty (Argus, October 17), inadequate birth control is certainly one of the causes.
People who deliberately set out to have more children than they can afford are being just plain irresponsible. I would further add to his list. Third World dictators who syphon off nations’ wealth, fertile land given over to bio-fuel production and untold acres of farmland used for solar panels that are useless at night.
