Abstract:
As the countries grow richer, their population undergoes a transition. The death rates and birth rates fall and eventually reach a phase where is a zero rate of population growth. The aging population creates shortages in efficient labour, capital intensive techniques of production reduces further surplus in production and it ends up in a stagnant state. Due to shortages in labour supply, the government would itself persuade the people to increase the birth rates. Added to that is the problem of migration. As the migrant population invades the domestic territories of a country, the domestic population loses it's job opportunities and would necessitate protectionist policies from the government.
