Population and the labour force in Latin America: Some simulation exercises

In Latin America due importance has not been attached to the problems deriving from population growth, and although it is not a matter of promoting a new malthusianism, attention should be drawn to the challenges with which the countries of the region will be faced if current population trends continue in the next few decades. Suffice it to point out that should this happen, Latin America would have more than 700 million inhabitants by the end of the century and over 6 000 million in a hundred years’ time; that is, its population would be 20 times as big as at present, and one and half times as large as the entire population of the world today.
