IV
THE ECONOMIC EFFECTS OF FERTILITY CONTROL IN UNDERDEVELOPED AREAS

ANSLEY J. COALE, Ph.D.

Chairman: Oscar Harkavy, Ph.D.

DR. HARKAVY introduced Dr. Ansley Coale as a man responsible for some of the most lucid analysis of population growth and economic development.

"It is our good fortune," said Dr. Harkavy, "that he has forgone the American Assembly (meeting to discuss United States policy on world population) in order to be with us. Dr. Coale, in addition to being Professor of Economics and Director, Office of Population Research, Princeton University, is currently with the United Nations and is also vice-president of the Population Association of America. He was a member of the National Academy Panel that recently issued a splendid report on the potential contribution of science to world population problems. He is co-author, with Edgar Hoover, of Population Growth and Economic Development in Low Income Countries, the definitive work to date on this subject."
