Millennials` Role in Protecting Environment (Part 3)

           Now and in the coming twenty to thirty years, the young generation, i.e., those who are 30 years or under, will constitute close to 70 per cent of the Philippine population.  In fact, the Philippines is often praised by economic analysts looking for attractive investment sites in the world for having a “young, growing and English-speaking population.”   From the macroeconomic point of view, this means that the Philippine economy will continue to grow for a long time on the basis of consumption spending, although government policy will also stimulate investment spending.  That means that the Philippine economy will have at least two powerful engines of growth, consumption and investment.  Millennials will be among those who will constitute the majority of Filipino consumers for some time to come.

POSITIVE DIMENSIONS OF POPULATION GROWTH

       The historical trends, empirical findings, and policy updates are discussed in detail in the essays compiled in this book. The most convincing argument that supports the thesis of the book, i.e. that population growth is a poitive factor in attaining sustainable human development, is found in the foreword to the book, which is adopted from an article written by Mr. Roberto de Ocampo, former Finance Secretary of the Philippines and multi-awarded finance official in Asia. Thanks to the continuing growth of the Philippines population, Filipinos are in more than 100 countries all over the world, contributing much-needed foreign echange and purchasing power to the Philippine economy and fostering the human and spiritual development of the most diverse of peoples and cultures on this planet.
