Here population nearly doubled in 10 years, and home prices tripled and urban planning circles hailed the boom as the new America at the far exurban fringe. But others saw it as the residential embodiment of the Edward Abbey line that "growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell.
Owners of 1 in 10 mortgages owe more than their houses are worth, and many just walk away.
Without vested owners, vandalism runs rampant and the place becomes a slum. Through immigration and high birth rates, the United States is expected to add another million people by We've already added million people since ; we have a net gain of one person every 13 seconds.
This housing boom was spurred by the state's broken tax system where cities were hampered by by property tax limitations and increased revenue by the easiest route: Developers plowed up walnut groves and vineyards to pay for services demanded by new school parents and park users.
A lesson can be learned from cities like San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and San Diego, which have stable and recovering home markets, have fairly strict development codes, trying to hem in their excess sprawl. Developers said these cities would eventually price the middle class out, and start to empty, but this hasn't happened.
Instead, the free-for-all cities like Las Vegas, the Phoenix metro area, South Florida, this valley - are the most troubled, the suburban slums. Population growth feeds these 'booms'. Build it and they will come, say the developers, confident that growth is always the answer.
They have no idea about carrying capacity. And most people still do not realize that economic hard times are related to carrying capacity.

Many argue that a decrease in human numbers would lead to a fiscal catastrophe, seeing that, in the last years, unprecedented economic growth has been accompanied by an equally unprecedented increase in world population. During the s and s, up to half of world economic growth was likely due to population growth; Georgetown University environmental historian John McNeill explains: More hands, more work, more things produced.
Slow population growth, and economic growth will likely slow as well unless advances in productivity and spending increase at rates high enough to make up the difference. This perhaps explains why population policy is not a popular issue.
Instead We should be looking at per capita GDP, which corrects for population growth. While Japan's economy has been touted as 'bad', based on its national GDP it has actually enjoyed the biggest gain in average income among the big three rich economies.
GDP is 'bad' only because its population is shrinking. Population decline may slow economic growth on a nationwide basis, "but it would not necessarily reduce per capita wealth or, indeed, per capita growth.
An economic "slowdown" that results from slowing and eliminating population growth is distinctly different from that caused by a credit crunch or the messy bursting of a speculative bubble. While it's true there will be fewer mouths to feed, there will also be fewer pairs of hands needing employment.
In many poorer nations, having more children means increasing the supply of labor, and lowering wages.The most significant challenge in health care today is the demand to deliver on the quadruple aims of experience, access, quality and cost.
