CWN Editor's Note: With the UN predicting that the world’s population will hit 8 billion this month, William McGurn of the Wall Street Journal asks: “Are human beings good?”

If human life is a good thing, McGurn reasons, we should celebrate the growth of the species. Citing the work of the late Julian Simon, and a new book entitled Superabundance, he makes the case that population growth is not a danger but a blessing.
