At some time-taken as in India for this case study-a low-income country may have the option of effectively promoting the reduction of fertility, or (by inaction) of permitting fertility to remain at high levels.

The relationship between population growth and growth of economic output has been studied extensively (Heady & Hodge, ).Many analysts believe that economic growth in high-income countries is likely to be relatively slow in coming years in part because population growth in these countries is predicted to slow considerably (Baker, Delong, & Krugman, ).Cited by: ADVERTISEMENTS: Population Growth and Economic Development of a Country.

When population grows faster than GNP, the standard of living of the people does not improve. In fact rapid population growth has been obstructing economic growth in developing countries like India where since population has been growing at a relatively high rate.

The World Bank has started the population growth above 2% per annum acts as a brake on economic development.

A cross-sectional analysis gives no clear indications: today population growth and economic growth seem randomly associated; in addition, variations in population growth (ranging from 1 to 4 percent over the period ) are small relative to variations in economic growth (from -2 to 10 percent).

The city filed for bankruptcy in and used the freedom from debt to reinvest in the local economy. An increase in a nation’s income can be expected to slow its rate of population growth.

Hong Kong, for example, has enjoyed dramatic gains in income since the s. Its birth rate and rate of population growth have fallen by over half during that time. But if economic development can slow population growth, it can also increase it. There are several reasons why population growth in developing countries is today a greater economic burden than it once was in today's developed countries: Population growth is now much more rapid.
