Population growth: cause of effect of poverty?

I would be interested to find out how population growth is viewed amongst 
members of this group.

Many people view population growth as an underlying, root cause of 
deprivation. Others see it as an effect - i.e, people only want large 
familys because of high death rates, and as a source of 'insurance' for old 
age in the absence of a pension system.

What do you think?
