Demographic shocks: the view from history: discussion

Author

  • David N. Weil

Abstract

Massimo Livi-Bacci has taken us on a fascinating tour of demographic history. What lessons for developments in the world today can we draw from the story he tells? I will distinguish between three types of lessons, which I call "economic lessons," "demographic lessons," and "cultural/political lessons."
