This course deals with the relationship between population and economic development. It will present the basic concepts of demography and illustrate them by the most recent works in historical demography and economic history. The aim is to give a broad perspective on the industrial revolution and the subsequent emergence of the modern economy but also to discuss how this historical analysis may help to understand present issues in population studies. We will tackle two sets of problems. First, the industrial revolution occurred simultaneously with huge population changes, in both quantitative and qualitative ways. We will explore how these changes–reduction in mortality, changes in the size and shape of the body, lower birth rate, population aging, and so on–contributed, or not, to economic growth. Second, changes in the economic environment–not only increases in income or wealth but also changes of institutions, urbanization, inequality–have themselves important consequences on population living conditions. Looking at both ways of the relationship, we will address the larger question of the role of different actors–markets, the state, individuals, and families–on economic development in the long run.
