Abstract:
The Brown University research program aims to increase the understanding of how investments in health and fertility decline contribute to economic growth. The project focuses on the effects of changes in health and demographic structure on the level of economic activity, the role of demographic change in the sustainable use of environmental resources, and the long term effects of early child health and nutrition on adult productivity.
