The Effects of Population Growth on Economic Growth in Malaysia
Keywords:Population, Economics, Malaysia
The relationship between population growth and economic growth has been a topic of interest for policymakers and economists around the world. Malaysia, one of the fastest-growing countries in Southeast Asia, has experienced significant population growth in recent years, with a projected population of 38.6 million by 2040. This thesis aims to examine the effects of population growth on economic growth in Malaysia, using both theoretical and empirical analyses. The results suggest that while there are positive effects of population growth on economic growth, there are also negative effects that policymakers need to consider.
