Abstract
The problem of increasing population is quite an old topic. The main aim of the study is to
investigate the relationship between population and economic growth in Japan and Singapore in
the period between the 1960s and 2000s. This is to be done using theoretical framework
involving theories of economic growth, as well as structural and demographic change theories.
The study indicates a positive relationship for the selected cases but it is not straightforward as
the direction of causality is controversial. The key factors in terms of the above mentioned
theories are present in order to explain the causality direction and the impact mechanism itself.
