Between andfood production in the developing world increased at an annual average of % (), only slightly faster than the average annual population growth of %.Thus, on a per capita basis, food production in the Third World as a whole increased by only % per year.

population growth shortens the time required to reach the population size that provides economies of scale in transport, communications, social ser-vices, and production. Some developing countries could benefit from such economies of scale, espe-cially in rural areas. And a big population can increase a country's economic as well as political.
