Title: Population and the Asian economic miracle 
Author: Mason, Andrew
Date: 1997

Abstract: Have slower rates of population growth accelerated economic development in East and Southeast Asia? An international study of six economies in the region points to three important ways in which a decline in childbearing and accompanying improvements in mortality have influenced economic development: through increases in the relative size of the labor force, improvements in education, and higher rates of saving and investment.
