When many countries like India and China try to reduce the population through birth control, business think-tank are worried about the lowering birth rate. They want more and more increase in birth rate since their business will improve only if more people are there and more purchases take place. Investment and profit of the MNCs and big business will reduce, if birth rate is redduced. Increase in population in countries like India will ensure cheap labour also. this is the argument put by Richard Hokenson, demographics expert.

‘Profit at any rate’ is the motto of the big industry, big business and world corporates! They are not worried about the improvement of the lives of the ordinary people or education of the children or any such improvement. They want improvement of ‘market’ only.
