Les conséquences économiques de la croissance démographique : 35 ans de débat entre orthodoxie et relativisme
This paper recapitulates the broad outlines of the theoretic debate on interelations between population expansion and economic growth. It identifies breakings and continuities that led to the constitution of an independant research field. That field associates population studies and economic growth and development theory. That thoeretical corpus has been built by confronting empirical observations and growth economics progress. In the same time, political and ideological settings have hugely influenced the process of that field. Economic effects of population growth are supposed to be alternatively negative, positive, or non-problematic depending on the theoretical perspective. (Full text in French)
