Demographic Dynamics and Economic Take-Off

Chinese Economy, 2011, vol. 44, issue 1, 72-90

Abstract: This article develops and tests a simple theory of demographic dynamics and economic take-off. It shows that demographic change has a threshold effect, and that China's population policies moved this threshold effect (i.e., the timing of economic take-off) forward by more than a decade. The impact of China's population-control policies on China's economic growth may be twice as large as what is estimated by the traditional econometric method.
