on economic sustainability...

Last night, CBS news reported that Russia is encouraging women to have two children in order to provide enough inhabitants to keep its economy sustainable. That made me wonder if an economy that is sustainable only because of an increase in population, no matter how caused, is really sustainable at all. Especially considering that the world would be a better place if the population was smaller.

And a conundrum: How come depictions of the 10 Commandment plaques supposedly handed down to Moses sometime about 1000 BCE, usually show Roman numerals from I to X?
