I just figured out How to increase Somali population. Adapt the culture of Indians. Girls getting married as early as 15. by the time she is 39 she has 15 children. No wonder the Indian population is HIGH

Wrong, Basra..

India's current total fertility rate (TFR) per woman is lower than Somalia.



Their high population along with the high population in China is because of early farming history.

PS. Somalia already has one of the highest TFRs in the world (see map above).

That's a massive problem for us, all economic growth basically gets nullified by our high fertility rates, so our GDP per capita actually falls.

Economics is weird, apparently there are legitimate econ theories out there that claim that the higher the population density and overall population the better the economy (including GDP per capita). Sort of like Singapore or Hong Kong.

And how you gonna sustain the increasing population? There are reasons why agriculturist societies have big populations, one of which is that they can feed themselves. Look at farmers in HoA (Oromos, Habashas) and compare their numbers with pastoralists(Somalis, Afar).

In ancient times, always the farmer groups became larger than pastoralists. But ironically, in the modern age, it seems like pastoralist groups outbreed settled groups (especially urbanized ones) because their cultures tend to be more traditionalist.

Bad example imo, Singapore and Hong Kong are developed nations/city-states, not really comparable to a 3rd world wartorn country on the periphery of Africa, not to mention they have an (on average) much more educated populace.

Women popping out 7 kids on average in a semi-desert is absolute insanity, it's not sustainable in the long run as we can't even feed the people we have already

Look at Somalia itself. Mogadishu and Hargeisa seem to be doing better than the rest of the country (on average).

I forgot the name of this theory, but it exists..
