Default Is the world population growth taking care of itself?

Is the world population growth taking care of itself? No. China & India both, a portion of the world where a significant (plurality?) portion of population growth was predicted to take place, have both taken strong measures to slow the growth of their populations.

Is world population growth a problem, even though most growth is taking place in the developing world where each person consumes very little resources? Yes!. Why? The transitional period. Once a country's mortality rate falls due to industrialization there is a lag before this newly developed country's birth rate's fall. A country's population explodes during this lag time! The people who say population growth in developing countries isn't a problem are people who are condemning the third world to perpetual poverty.
