The objective of this paper is to study the impact of the rate of demographic growth via the the epidemic Maltus' idea on economic growth on the one hand. And on the other hand, we examine the effect of political stability on economic growth. This work follows a methodology describing empirically while using the GMM dynamic panel method on five-year cross-sectional data (2016-2020) for some countries of North Africa and the Middle East.
