In order to achieve a given rate of increase in per capita income, larger investment is needed. Some scientists believe that our advances in Science will help augment the demands of a growing population. Recent experience in economic dynamics shows that turbulence in one region may easily transmit to This paper considers the causal link between population growth and standard-of-living growth, using long historical time-series data over 1870-2013. In the year 2000 it hit 6 billion, and without a sign of slowing down, continue to increase at an unprecedented pace. The number concerned when calculating the population is the number of individuals alive. As young people are more likely to migrate, this leads to intensified urban environmental concerns, as listed above. Thus, human population growth arguably affects other species even more than it does our down. b. a. By year 2025, we should be reaching a population between 8 to 10 billion. Population Growth and Standard of Living Recently, the human population on this planet surpassed an amazing milestone. The principle index for population-economic growth was differential per capita income, or income exceeding the basic minimum standard of living. Despite enormous gains in the wellbeing and economic circumstances of hundreds of millions of people, 10% of the world's population still live on less than $2 a day. At present, the global population has both the largest proportion of young people (under 24) and the largest percentage of elderly people in history. They don’t believe that further population growth should be a cause of concern. The composition of a population can also affect the surrounding environment. In India, annual growth rate of population is 1.8 percent and capital output ratio is 4:1. Indian population is growing at a rate of 1.8 percent per annum. Humans share the earth’s resources with countless other species (the majority of which also most likely haven’t even been discovered yet!). The most accurate index is the balance between population and sustainability. By year 2100, we will need 3 Earths to continue living the way we do. Achieving sustainable population levels, locally and globally, helps people achieve the dignity and standard of living we all deserve. If a section of the population is living in absolute poverty, economic growth enables people to have higher incomes and therefore they will be able to afford the basic necessities of life such as; food, and shelter. Rapid Growth. Population growth occurred when per capita income was higher than the standard up to a threshold level, after which population declined. This adversely affects the growth rate of the economy. High population growth traps individuals, communities and even entire countries in poverty. When economic growth can overcome this type of poverty there is a clear link with improved living standards. Rapid growth is a quick increase in population. ** When population growth becomes “rapid” there is a great chance that the counter-productive level has been reached. d. If a country's standard of living is to increase, then its population growth must decrease to almost zero. The standard future scenario in their computer projections showed positive growth in both the population and the economy until the mid-21st century - and then a decline. Economic growth in developing countries would profit from slower population growth. e. to break the link between a higher standard of living and faster population growth. Rapid population growth decreased differential per capital income. The debt burden in developing countries is not affecting economic development. c. Economic development does not affect population growth.
