Is a population policy really necessary?

  • Jacques Vallin
Registered author(s):

    Implementing a population policy implies that an optimal population size can be defined, based on the quantity of available resources and on the level of progress in production technologies. But these economic questions cannot be dissociated from the population age structure, trends in life expectancy and improvements in health. The efficacy of programmes to control births or to encourage fertility has been limited, and the same is true of policies to control migration flows.
