The World Economic Forum is the organization that puts on the annual Davos Confab of the Insufferable.
Personally, I don’t think Lagos will ever have 88.3 million residents.
I’m reminded of the fine 1986 book about Mexico by the NYT’s Mexico City correspondent Alan Riding, Distant Neighbors. Riding took it as a given that Greater Mexico City’s population, then about 18 million, would grow to 30 million. But instead, Mexico City got so awful as its population kept going up that Mexican peasants moved to the United States instead, and Greater Mexico City is around 21 million today.
