There are a couple of other problems with the idea that the poor nations of the world are going to grow their way out of poverty by draining their countrysides, moving into shanty-towns, working in factories, and exporting stuff to the rest of the world it's pretty clear that China alone, even with 60% of its people still back on the farm, can produce most of the stuff that the world would ever need.  Even a world of 6 billion people can use only so many shower curtains.
