Re: Did Picard make the right decision with the Son'a/Baku

There are no Coruscants in the Federation and the notion of an exploding populations that needs space is not supported by the real world experience of stagnating populations in rich countries. On Earth there was furthermore a nasty nuclear war and I doubt that the population size is larger than today. It is probably smaller.
In short, colonists do not go the border because of economic reasons. They like the challenge.
