    The good:

    - I know that nursing is booming right now because of the elderly population.

    - More businesses, jobs, technology are being created.

    - More consumers for businesses / services.

    The bad:

    - More pollution in the air because of everyone driving cars.

    - Shortage of natural resources over time: water, gas, etc.

    - More wars because of other countries not getting along.

    there are multiple books discussing exactly this subject. perhaps the primary one is that the ratio of workers to non-workers in a society will decline. That suggests a higher portion of total resources devoted to non-workers ... which probably means higher taxes on workers and, therefore, lesser ability by them to invest for their own futures.
