The primary motivator of coercive population control measures in China and India is different: concerns about so-called overpopulation. In the. In world terms, the population is growing at about % annually (compared with % in ancient times and a rate of % as recently as the s) in population.

Although a % growth rate may appear small, it adds annually some 82 million persons—and even more than that as the population continues to grow—to the world's population, with. My answer is contrary to the popular belief that population has to be controlled. China had forced the 1 child policy for decades.

This led to control in population but now they have more than 30% of the people who are non productive. Reacting to.

The Population Bomb is a best-selling book written by Stanford University Professor Paul R.

Ehrlich. The population of India has grown rapidly over the last sixty years, from about million in to approximately billion today. Although the rate of growth has now slowed, India's population size is still increasing, and demographers expect it to reach billion people bymaking India the most populous country on earth.

Ehrlich, told me recently that the book’s main contribution was to make population control “acceptable” as “a topic to debate.” But the book did far more than that. Similarly brutish population control programs were implemented in Africa, India, Egypt and many South American nations.

To save the planet, babies had to be prevented. The planning Commission envisaged control of population growth rate through Five Year Plans in India.

But as in India, population control in China also relied on repressive force.

In the “most coercive phase in the whole history of China’s one-child policy [in the s] all women with one child were to be inserted with a stainless-steel tamper-resistant IUD, all parents with two or more children were to be sterilised, and all unauthorised.

Paul Ralph Ehrlich (born ) is an American biologist, best known for his warnings about the consequences of population growth and limited resources. He is the Bing Professor of Population Studies of the Department of Biology of Stanford University and president of Stanford's Center for Conservation Biology.

Ehrlich became well known for his controversial book The Population Doctoral advisor: C. Michener. The Population Bomb—coming as it did in the context of Cold War tensions (especially fears that India would follow China to communism), decolonization in Asia and Africa, and broader social unrest both in the US and the "third world"—convinced Americans that India's growing population, with its demand for a greater share of world resources.

India is very close to this point now, as many states have, in fact, TFR below This means India’s population is about to hit the replacement level.

Government of India has made many laws regarding raising the minimum age of females marriage, education upto high secondary, abolition of child labour and others. Modern Population Growth In the late 20th cent., a major population difference arose in the comparative growth rates of the developed (%) and developing (%) nations.

Africa's annual growth rate is now about %, compared to % for Asia, % in Latin America, and % in Europe. 2 Population-Control-Policies and their Ef-fects on Economic Growth in China from to Analyzing the existing neo-classical growth theories and models such as for example the model introduced by Robert Solow (), we can argue, that the demographic shock caused by the One-Child-Policy has in the short runFile Size: KB.
