I've had this topic come up before.  Heinlein's conclusions were pretty
completely wrong, because he assumed American levels of consumption and
concluded that the Soviet Union must have been inflating their population
claims.  I'm sure lots of people lied about many things, but the Russians
simply didn't consume as many resources.

HIs guesses about the future are also hilariously wrong, but predictions
always are.
