    Yes. America and Hong Kong are facing the similar contemporary problem of rapid increase population, particularly the US as the land of opportunity. First of all, both is experiencing the stagflation of higher unemployment and inflation.


    The striking fact of China as the rapid mobile population is described many living in the remote areas are rushing to the big cities to get jobs. It remains the contemporary problem of more and rapid population growth in Beijing, Dogguan, and Shanghai where more manufacturing and service industries provide jobs. It appears the population of the already smaller size are shrinking to even smaller and large cities become more populated. The most concerned problem in China is that once the resident of the remote area relocated to a modernized city, he or she has lost the social benefit of the local region, such as medical, social allowance, discount on purchasing products or paying the utilities.

    In Hong Kong is the worst among all. It is stated in the followings.

    1) The biggest civil servants budget that need to rely on land sales at extra high prices to sustain the lavishing government spending, to pay the salaries of officials, civil servants, public funded professional working for the authority.

    2) Most polluted city in Asia with car flow capacity of 400/km on most the rush daily hours.

    3) It will trigger the even higher real estate prices and not many can afford it.

    4) The rapid increasing population will create the most unhealthy city to live in this world.

    It is in the developing countries where there is rapid population growth but in many the fertility rate has fallen dramatically in recent decades ( for example china) so it is not the problem that it was in the 1960's. If the population grows faster than the GDP living standards decline but at times and places where there is an abundance of land and resources per capita the increase in population can be accommodated, for example in the US in the 19th century

    Depends on the state of their economy. A well educated and working population and a government who is wise and smart are an asset to the country's growth.Human capital plus well capitalised and responsible institutions that have responsible regulators also contribute to economic growth.
