Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
After you read the book and watch the video, apply what you learned by writing a 500-750 word essay and explain:
What you think is in store for the world’s population problem and do you think Malthus’ theory is correct or incorrect?
Here are some ideas to help.
1. Explain the main ideas of Malthus’ theory.
2. Apply some of the topics in the video and chapter and relate them to Malthus’ theory.
3. What are some of the major population problems of the world? Where are most of these problems in the world? Apply the fundamental attributes of demography (migration, population density, total fertility rate, mortality rate are a few examples) to analyze problems that you observe.
