Population growth is rate at which populations increase in size, population grows exponentially. After studying the rates at which different countries populations would double, my eyes were opened to the main issues of population growth. The main issues include not enough space per person in area i.e. overcrowding, the fact that food growth is at a slower rate than the increasing amount of people there is to feed, inequality of resources and causes natural resources to decline, such as water and trees. The issue of population growth and over population that was most challenging to me was the lack of solutions to the issue.
60 million out of 119.7 million people are living in poverty due to the rapid growth of the population in Mexico. Mexico’s population number is increasing day by day which leads to an undesirable condition. The occurrence of overpopulation happens when the world’s population mass exceeds the carrying capacity of an area. According to Sustaining our Future, therefore, it is predicted that with the current increase rate of the population in the world, there will eventually be more people existing than available resources (Cohen). Rapid population growth is bringing several problems to the Mexican society.
The resources on the earth remain constant in spite of the mushrooming growth of the population. In view of this, the capability to sustain the development today has become a great challenge to mankind. The birth rate (fertility), death rate (mortality), and the migration (immigration and emigration) of people in the country are primary influences that cause the fluctuations of people in an area. Population data is provided from the national level to smaller area that is country (Malaysia), state, strata, administrative district, district, Local Authority Area (LAA), Parliament and State Legislative Assembly (DUN). Malaysia is ranked 44th most populated countries in the world.
1992-2010 data from Wolff (2012). Table 3 represents the share of wealth held by the bottom 99% and top 1% in the United States from 1949 to 2010. Change of wealth distribution is not favorable for the bottom 99% as this class obtaining less and less wealth while the top 1%’s wealth is expanding. The gap between the rich and the poor is increasing. This factor has not only economic drawbacks but social problems are increasing at the same time (Kennickel, 2003).
Income inequality is a widespread occurrence affecting the global community. Income inequality is the gap between the world’s top income earners and the rest of the population. The ethical question is whether the world's top earners should help those with lower incomes. This debate has become more relevant in the last three decades due to the unnatural increase in the income gap. Without the support of the bottom 99 percent, democracies will lose their functionality.
The fundamental problem is the industrial development under, agricultural products devaluation and wages too low, lower class does not have the purchasing power, wealth is concentrated in the upper hand, the circulation of money appear obstacle. So the Roosevelt New Deal through a series of social reforms, enhance the income of the lower class, the security purchasing power and restart the business cycle. By the business productivity increasing, society supply enhancement. But demand cannot follow the productivity. It results social unemployment.
Food insecurity has many causes, including rising food prices, climate change, population growth, and inadequate income. First, Healthy food is just more expensive because the demand for unhealthy food is higher in the U.S. In addition to this, healthy food is more expensive due to global warming, as crop production is
With higher production costs and productivity at it maximum, companies cannot maintain profits by producing the same amounts of goods and services. As a consequence, the increased costs are passed on to customers, causing a rise in the overall price level (inflation). Demand-pull inflation occurs when there is an increase in collective demand, categorized by the four sections of the macro economy: governments, households, businesses and foreign buyers. When these four sectors at the same time want to purchase more output than suppliers can produce, buyers compete to acquire limited amounts of goods and services. Buyers then bid prices up, again and again, causing inflation.
This essay focuses on the negative and positive effects of population growth on economic development. NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF POPULATION GROWTH ON ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT Government resources are limited, so population growth is seen as using up those limited resources on unproductive investment such as providing for the dependent population (the young (0-14) and the old (65and above) ). These government resources could have been used for capital goods and improving other sectors which might contribute to growth of the economy other than spending them on consumption goods. To support this point Cincotta and Engelman (1997) mention that the growth of GDP can be constrained by high dependency ratios, which result when rapid population growth produces large proportions of children and youth relative to the labour force. Population growth competes with capital formation and as such more is spent on the dependent ratio at
So a growing human population must pose some kind of a threat to the well-being of planet Earth, mustn 't it?Currently, we as a population use up most of the resources how we please, waste, and even pollute. Our plan is to feed and to breed. The fertility rate has all of a sudden gone up incredibly over the past decade. Yes, we are getting overpopulated but there is no way we can control that.We simply cannot just kill every other baby that is born. Imagine every year how many graduates there are in different universities, college school from different countries.
This shows a 41% increase during the span from 1980 to 2012. 4. During this time the supply of college seats were limited and were not able to meet the demand the population was seeking. C. Increase in administrative staff is the main reason for increase in college expenses. 1.
