New Study Says That World Population Will Be a Lot Lower Than Predicted by 2100

Posted by in category: policy

India will reach its population peak in 2065.

India is the second most populous country in the world. With 1,414 billion, it comes right after China. However, contrary to China’s population-reducing policy, India’s population is increasing and seems to surpass China in a few decades.

As BBC reported, China reduced its population growth rate by about half, from two percent in 1973 to 1.1 percent in 1983. According to demographers, much of this was accomplished by trampling on human rights.

A study suggests that the world’s population will shrink after 2100, reaching much lower numbers than what the U.N. currently predicts, and major shifts in economic power are also likely to happen.
