Will India’s population boom lead to economic boom like it did in China?
India and China have the largest populations in the world and immense geographical trade advantages. China’s boom was spurred by the “demographic dividend” of the great population boom of the 1950s-1970s. As China’s population dividend tails off experts now look to see if India will replicate the phenomenon. With almost 50% of the population under 35 the labor force and the potential market are certainly young and dynamic. Can India use this advantage like China did and experience massive economic growth in the next 20 years?
