demographic dividend

I have learned an economics term-"demographic dividend"- through the VOA Special English program. It is a difficult and unfamiliar word, but has brought a new idea to me.

The center of world economy has been changing, I think from recent news. Most people have recognized that it is in US or Europe now. But, it may move to China, India or Brazil in the future.

By the way, Japanese word translated from"demographic dividend" is "人口配当(or 人口による配当)".

That's pretty unusual English. I suppose that only economists would use it.

Thank you for a comment. I could understand that it is "a pretty unusual English" from your comment.
