Worldwide Practices: Population Growth for Economic Expansion

Population growth in a country leads to economic growth, but how can we harness that into a long-term strategy we can all share for achieving economic expansion while reaching for individual sustainable prosperity?

Numerous economic studies show that the most prosperous countries generally have slower rates of population growth, a phenomenon called the "demographic-economic paradox." It's a paradox because a lot of wise people, including Thomas Robert Malthus, have theorized that prosperous societies will have more children because they can afford them. Not so, apparently.
