Professor Pooley to the rescue!

Hawaii resident Gale Pooley took on supervillain Thanos of the “Avengers” film series over the issue of resource scarcity and population control, at a Grassroot Institute of Hawaii event on Maui, Monday, Sept. 9.

Pooley is an economist and associate professor of business management at Brigham Young University-Hawaii, and co-author of the recent Cato Institute report, “The Simon Abundance Index: A New Way to Measure Availability of Resources.”

In particular, Pooley dissected Thanos’ dangerous belief that humans are a drain on Earth’s resource, pointing out that the opposite is true: that as the human population increases, resources actually become more plentiful.

The event was moderated by Keli’i Akina, Ph.D., Grassroot Institute of Hawaii president.
