Economics Of Mahavira ► 10 ► [10.14] Introspection and Clarifications (14)

Question:
In the new economics, what is the place for population control?

Answer:
In my view, if man is not starving and poor, population will not increase. Poverty has a close correlation with demographic growth. Population increases as poverty increases. The day starvation is prevented and proper nutritious food is available to the people, the rate of population growth would go down. Malnutrition and population growth are closely related. Anybody can verify this. An average common man does not have as many children as a poor person.
