Next Big Futures has been a pioneer in providing data on the progress of the global economy since 2013.
The latest update from our research shows that the world’s population has reached a record high of around 9 billion and is projected to reach an additional 8 billion by 2060.
The chart below shows that, as of now, China is the world leader in GDP per capita growth, with GDP increasing by 2.8 per cent over the past year.
In fact, GDP in China has surpassed the United States and Japan for the first time.
The second graph, the one below, shows that population growth has plateaued over the last three decades and is now the slowest in history.
The slowest growth in the world over the period from 1947 to 2011 is the Soviet Union, at a rate of just 1.3 per cent per annum.
We have a chart to prove it.
This graph, taken from the World Bank’s Global Burden of Disease Report, shows the fastest growing countries in the G20 since the 1980s.
However, despite these countries’ rapid growth, the number of people in the United Kingdom, Germany, France and the US have grown at rates far slower than the growth of China, which is at 5.2 per cent annually.
This chart shows that China is currently the world largest emitter of greenhouse gases and will overtake the United Sates in 2020, the United Arab Emirates in 2023, India in 2024 and Australia in 2025.
The third graph, which shows the slow growth of the world population, shows a clear picture of the slowdown in population growth in recent decades.
The fourth graph, from the same report, shows how population growth is projected by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to plateau in the next 20 years.
At that point, the world will have just under 6 billion people.
While China is now on the fast track to becoming the world number one emitter, the trend towards slowing population growth will continue.
This will result in a further decline in the rate of growth of GDP in the years ahead.
It is important to realise that the data shown above is for a particular time period.
Over the past three decades, GDP has risen at a much faster rate than population growth.
It is true that population is now increasing at an average annual rate of 3.7 per cent, which compares favourably to the 3.1 per cent growth of gross domestic product (GDP) during the previous period.
However, GDP per person, a measure of economic output, has been flat since 2008.
Moreover, the pace of population growth can be expected to increase as the population continues to increase.
By 2060, the average annual growth rate of GDP per head will have increased to 1.7, which would make it the fastest in history for an industrialized country.
the world has an increasing number of citizens, so the overall rate of population increase will likely be slower than what is happening in China.
At the same time, the global population will continue to grow, particularly in the developing world.
According to the UN Population Division, the population of developing countries will grow from 2.3 billion in 2030 to 2.5 billion by the year 2050.
So, we can safely assume that population will remain relatively constant throughout this period.
However, if we look at GDP per inhabitant in 2030, it will be a little lower than what it is today.
Given the rapid growth of populations and the continued increase in population, the question becomes how much faster can we expect growth to pick up before population starts to slow again?
We are at a critical point in time.
According to the World Economic Forum, GDP growth is forecast to reach 3.8% by 2080, which represents a significant drop from the current rate of 2.9 per cent.
As a result, the World Population Prospects Project estimates that by 2040, global population is expected to be about 11.6 billion people, which will be less than half the size of today’s population.
There are many different ways that the population could be expected, but one thing is clear: there is a need for more robust and accurate data.
