[T]ake 100M people.

Hang all 3 strikes criminals every year without exception.
Sterilize all with IQ below 90 before they are 16.

I mean, I can create scenarios all day long. I’ve done quite a few models and it depends on the initial distribution, the age range of reproduction, the number of children .. etc. Basically it happens as fast or slow as you want it to. Myself I just recommend the Chinese solution: punish the hell out of people who export costs and who have more than one kid, and reward people at the top who have more than one kid. Then let time do its thing.
