Lighthearted introduction to the life of Thomas Robert Malthus (1766-1834), who was "an English clergyman and political economist -- the originator of Malthusian population theory. Broadly stated, Malthusian theory holds that human and other populations will increase until checked by natural limitations, principally to do with food supply." According to the site, "his family called him Bob." Includes a biography and brief genealogy information. From "a descendant of Bob's older brother, Sydenham (Syd, probably)."
