Chapter 2 Population, Economic Growth, and TFP in Developed Countries Abstract In this chapter, we investigate the relationship between population size and economic growth using growth accounting and empirical studies. We begin with an explanation of the production function and growth theory. Although economic growth can be achieved by increasing the amounts of either labor or capital in the production function, it can also be realized through increased efficiency or, in other words, by improving how factors are used together.

This is the main theme of this chapter, and we will offer conclusions using theoretical and empirical studies. First, some technological progress theories are considered in terms of population scale and growth. “Genius hypothesis” or intellectual interaction theories will be analyzed. A discussion regarding the relationship between technological progress and population is also included below. In addition, in regard to the demand side, we also review whether the population scale is important for maintaining the current consumption market.

It can therefore be said that the growth rate of the economy is proportional to the total amount of research conducted in society. However, Collins et al. (2013) proposed an interesting view on this point. They wrote that “a complementary driver of technological progress is evolution of the human potential to innovate. As a larger population generates more mutations, population growth will increase the rate at which new traits may emerge. If mutations that increase innovative potential raise the fitness of the host, these genes will spread in the population, enhance technological progress and provide an economic basis for further population growth” (Collins et al.
