About the Seminar
 
Among economists the growing population is at the centre of debate who are divided into two groups – pessimists and optimists. The pessimists lament that excessive population puts constraint on scarce resources of the economy leading to distorted land-man ratio, unemployment and massive poverty. The optimists on the other hand emphasize that it is not overpopulation but underdevelopment that is the chief cause of backwardness of the third world. According to them, population is indeed a great resource which if used effectively put the nations in the higher growth trajectories as evidenced from South Asian miracle and Chinese growth story. Further, the new insight into population economics is also attracting academicians, researchers and policy makers worldwide to delve deeply into the concept of demographic dividend.
