Are large populations a blessing or a curse for a nation?
China, India and Brazil are examples of how large populations can turn out to be a blessing for a country. But is it really so simple?
In my view, large populations are never a blessing for a nation. You need great resources to cater needs of such a large population.They can be blessing for MNC's who may establish manufacturing units in such countries to take advantage of cheaper labor costs.

Homelessness, food shortages, the spread of disease, overcrowding, water shortages, depleated natural resources, pollution, trash, ethnic diversity which generally causes racial crimes, traffic, and an increase in total crime. I am sure I missed a lot! But it also adds to the many diverse arts, music, foods, clothing, sports, dance, etc...
