54:40747 Benedick, Richard E. Population-environment linkages and sustainable development. Populi, Vol. 15, No. 3, Sep 1988. 14-21 pp. New York, New York. In Eng.
The author develops the argument that "population and evironmental policies should be integrated because the problems of poverty, population, natural resources and the environment are closely related." He notes that although several international conferences have reached this conclusion, the impact on national development strategies to date has been minimal.

In Fre. with sum. in Eng; Spa.
"Discussions on the present demographic situation of Quebec and the industrialized countries are mainly centered around a few major themes, almost always the same. This paper suggests that some other aspects, often neglected, should also be taken into account, and concludes that--in order to be realistic--a possible population policy for Quebec should not be defined in terms of numbers to be reached, but rather in relation with the conditions wherein the population lives and reproduces itself."

This chapter is concerned with the responsibility of wealthy countries toward the formulation and implementation of population policies in developing countries. The moral issues involved are first reviewed. The utilitarian, or economic, approach to the analysis of the relationship between population and development is then considered, and the Heckscher-Ohlin and Keynesian growth models are introduced. The author concludes that although developed countries have a right to offer assistance to developing countries to help reduce their rate of population growth, the most effective intervention is likely to be in easing market conditions for trade between the countries concerned rather than in supporting family planning programs.

54:40756 Qiao, Xiaochun. Inquiry into the research method behind our strategy of population development. Renkou Yanjiu, No. 6, Sep 29, 1986. 6-10 pp. Beijing, China. In Chi.
This is a critique of research on which the strategy of China's current population planning is based. The author states that the research process should be more multidimensional, involving both qualitative and quantitative aspects, static and dynamic analyses, and both macro- and micro-level analysis. The strategy should also take into consideration political as well as socioeconomic factors. The article concludes with a summary of macro- and micro-level plans for the country's future population development.

Current demographic trends in Romania are reviewed using official data up to 1985. Factors considered include the rise in mortality, a modest increase in fertility, rapid demographic aging, and high rates of divorce. However, the author is critical of the lack of progress in Romanian demography in recent years. He points out that the goals of Romanian population policy--increased fertility, decreased mortality, and improvement of the age and sex distribution of the population--will not be easily reached without demographic reserch.

M.2. Measures Affecting Fertility

Government policies aimed at directly influencing fertility and nuptiality, and policies with an indirect effect on fertility such as family allowances, pregnancy and maternity benefits, infant welfare measures, and government regulation of fertility controls, including abortion.

54:40762 Auvinen, Riitta. The conflicts and harmony between taxation and family policy in Finland. Yearbook of Population Research in Finland, Vol. 26, 1988. 22-5 pp. Helsinki, Finland. In Eng.
The role of taxation policy in Finland in influencing fertility is discussed using published data for 1984 on family characteristics and relative tax burdens. The author does not find evidence of a coherent tax policy favoring families with children and suggests that if such a family policy is desired, a coordinated range of tax reforms is necessary.

In Fre. with sum. in Eng; Spa.
"Two questions are discussed in this paper: (1) what are, according to theory, the possible fields of intervention if one wants to act on the determinants of fertility? (2) according to those theories which seem to be validated by empirical analysis, what are the main determinants of the present fertility trend, on which it would be necessary to act in order to stop the decline and obtain an upward movement? The author concludes that, according to the present state of knowledge, a pronatalist policy is out of reach, except as a mere experimental exercise."

"This paper discusses pronatalist and migration policies that have been introduced in selected European countries. Measures and objectives are briefly described before an evaluation of the efficacy of each is provided. The case studies chosen show that pronatalist policies have had limited effects. Migration policies seem to have been more effective, although their aims so far have been largely non-demographic....Both pronatalist and migration strategies tend to conflict with other policies (social and economic policies, emancipation or housing policies), and to be in competition with the demands of an ageing society. Limits to the development or expansion of either strategy are spelled out."

The author describes "the methodology used to simulate such a stationary population and [discusses] the results and implications of the simulation exercise." It is noted that in order to attain its target of a stationary population of approximately 3.4 million by 2030, it will be necessary to relax current antinatalist policies and to encourage an increase in fertility to replacement levels.

"This paper aims at evaluating the effectiveness of China's urban policies by investigating the temporal and spatial dynamics of the size distribution of China's cities during the period 1922-82. The research framework--which is based on a function relating population size to rank--is used to test for trends of deconcentration (where smaller cities grow faster than larger cities) and spatial decentralization (with a more even spatial distribution) of population over the study period....The findings show that from 1953 to 1970 there was significant population deconcentration, which appeared to be reversed subsequently. However, policies of spatial decentralization were not found to be successful. Among the reasons suggested for the apparent failure are political upheavals and shifts in policies, the inertia within the urban system, the harsh physical environment in the interior, and current trends in economic policies that focus on the coastal areas."

The possible effects of demographic aging in Canada on its immigration policy are explored, with a focus on the need to increase the segment of the population under age 21. "The present paper has been prepared to address whether an age related demographic problem exists in Canada and whether or not immigration might be a suitable tool for dealing with the problem." Data are from official sources and concern population characteristics, fertility, and abortion rate.

Portuguese international migration policy is analyzed with a focus on the migration of Portuguese citizens to the rest of Europe. In particular, the author examines Portuguese efforts to avoid the negative consequences of policies to halt immigration in the early 1970s that were instituted by many of the countries that had previously welcomed immigrants to the labor force. Endeavors to organize the Portuguese abroad and to preserve their link to their country of origin are also described.

"The policy alternative of a selective immigration policy is studied here with a two-country economic growth model: one country is rich, with a low rate of population growth. The other is poor with a high population growth rate. The model distinguishes three factors of production (physical capital, skilled and unskilled labour). With a constant-returns-to-scale technology the factors are employed to produce one good. The welfare effects are considered both for the country of emigration and of immigration....The analysis shows that migration of skilled labour between countries with different population growth rates has three effects. These are the effects of changes in the effective population growth rate, a free rider effect in the country of immigration and a capital substitution effect. The latter implies that physical capital investment by rich countries in poor countries declines with immigration. The net result of these effects in terms of welfare of each of the countries and total world welfare depends heavily on the technologies in use and the cost of training."
