Similarly, Coleman (2006) sees im­ migration as the main solution for low-fertility countries. His data show, both in Europe and the US, an increase in immigration between 1960 until 1988, a peak in 1992 and a highly volatile development afterwards. Political decisions to place stricter restrictions on immigration were a major cause of the demographic slump in Germany in the first decade of the twenty-first century (Kemper 2011). Similar (demographically counterproductive) regulations were strengthened in most Eu­ ropean countries and the US.

His ideas partly inspired the Bretton Woods system, which ceteris paribus was successful in holding interest rates below the level of the thirties and thus paved the road for the ‘golden’ post-war decades from 1950 to 1980 (Reinhart 2012; Sbrancia and Reinhart 2011). Whereas Keynes thought that population numbers as such influence growth rates, recent empirical work has shown that the demographic transition influences growth rates through its age structure. Whereas in early phases of demographic transition the high proportion of young people dampens growth rates in the form of a demographic burden, a combination of declining birth rates, rising numbers of people of working age and still few people of old age produce a demographic divi­ dend in later phases of the demographic transition.
