They would also be able to have more children because of the Poor Laws. Malthus basically saw poverty as one type of preventive check.
As an economist, Malthus falls under the umbrella of classical political economics, but within this classification he had shown differences when compared with his fellow classical economists such as his long time friend and economic rival, David Ricardo. He also believed that economics played a vital role in population.
He saw that there was a correlation between income and family size. The higher the income, the more ready a household is to have more children. This is one of the main reasons he opposed government aid. After reading portions of Malthus' Essay on Population and several articles on sustainability, innovation, etc. First, the social cost would be too high if public assistance, foreign aid, etc. With regards to agriculture, the U. For example, its present population is approximately million, which leaves 0.
But by the year the projected population is more than double that with million, leaving grain land per person at 0. With the US playing such a major role in current international affairs, I believe that it would be in its best interest to aid friendly nations that need assistance.
If it were to play a Malthusian role in humanitarian assistance, the image of the US would turn into an imperialistic one, where its main concerns in international relations would merely be economic and security related. In a more domestic example, if the US were to eliminate welfare and social security, there would be both social and monetary costs that exceed the current situation.
The current economic state of the US would be drastically changed since overall spending would decrease without social security. People would be less certain about their economic futures and opt to save more. With less overall spending, investment into industry would decrease and output supplied would fall.
Also, without welfare as an aid during "rainy days", we would see an increase in crime, as more and more citizens turn to illegal means in order to survive. This in turn would lead to an increase in demand for law enforcement officers, jails, court hours, etc. Adding up all these policing costs would outweigh the costs of food stamps, unemployment checks, etc. On a social basis, the public as a whole would never allow the welfare systems to end.
There would be too much controversy involved because of certain groups it would effect. A wise political hopeful would know not to be tackling the welfare debate with one-sidedness. Second, advances in energy conservation and environmentally safe alternatives help preserve our natural resources. One of the existing problems today that may give Malthusian thinkers a valid argument is the dwindling global level of oil.
It takes an extraordinarily intricate series of events in nature to produce fossil fuels. The solution to this energy question would be to find alternatives. There have been great advances made in the field of renewable energy sources. Alternative sources include solar, water, wind, and biomass plants and animal material. Photovoltaic or solar cells, along with wind and hydro generators can supply sufficient amounts of electricity to the average home, while biomass fuel such as alcohol and methane can serve the purposes of transportation fuels.
It is difficult to see the world that Malthus foresaw more than two hundred years ago.
