    Whenever Rome conquered an area, they would raid it for slaves. Prisoners-of-war, in fact, was the main source of slaves. When conquests stopped; the main source of slaves dried up, there was less cheap labor---Hence, economic decline. Rome needed more soldiers than Italy could provide; so she enlisted barbarians from her borders. As these areas became civilized, there were fewer barbarians---hence, fewer soldiers. Another factor is that with peace and prosperity, cities grow. People in cities have a lower birth-rate than people in the country. So with bigger cities---net smaller population.
