Historians have shown that the dynamic of population growth directly correlates with the dynamic of economic growth a decade or two down the line.
This may be outdated thinking. Historians look at Henry Ford and Northern Indiana and see men in cloth caps bolting tin lizzies together for 14 hours a day.

That same site today, three or four generations later is deepest rust belt, while the money is being made some other place by different people. Today the ability to create wealth doesn't correlate as directly with the number of people you employ. Politicians missed the signs and failed to push ahead with automation as hard as they could. They're trying to fix the 21st century's problems with the 19th century's solutions.
