The Optimal Change of a Population

  • Alfred Sauvy
Part of the International Economic Association Series book series (IEA)


Since the static concept of an optimal population is in many cases incapable of satisfactory application, one seeks to ascertain the rate of change which is desirable. One is not necessarily concerned with a human population. The problem may arise equally with an animal population (cattle) or with populations of objects (a forest, a collection, financial assets and the like).
