The purpose of doing this was to reduce the unit cost. Malthus proposed a theory in his first work called ‘'An Essay on the Principles of the Population.'' There was a very pessimistic picture about population growth in that case and he said that ‘'It is a shame to believe that population will grow endlessly without encountering any obstacles''. According to this theory, the population increases in the form of geometric series of 1,2,4,6,8,16,32… as foods increases 1,2,3,4,5,6… in the form of arithmetic series. Malthus said that the rate of population growth was much higher than the increase in food capacity needed for human nutrition, which inevitably creates a crisis.
This capitulated into high fertility and birth rates and low mortality rates during the Industrial Revolution. As economic development advanced, the second half of the 19th century Europe saw another modification in the population growth rates with both low birth and mortality rates. This was due to the changing European marriage pattern, better education system, medical innovation, women independence, migration, globalization and economic prosperity that resulted in the population growth of Europe to decrease and remain
The time period between 1914-1932 provided immense political, economic, and social changes in the American society as a consequence of World War I. The end of World War I resulted in many political changes because the United States during the Roaring Twenties was led by Republicans, after many Americans became intolerant of Democratic President Wilson’s liberal policies. This political alternation provides the conservative era to emerge, playing a pivotal role throughout this time period. William E. Leuchtenburg uses excellent diction in the title of his novel, “Perils of Prosperity” in order to allow the readers to possess a precedence of the discussions that Leuchtenburg will address in his novel, leading to a pitfall, hence the word perils. Lechtenberg addresses the increase in consumerism conflict between, and the social division between rural and urban lifestyles, which ultimately leads to the Great Depression of 1929.
Malthus, for example maintained that the increase in income of workers reflects itself in their sexual propensity to reproduce themselves. He therefore envisaged that (,i.e. )while population will be and increasing in a geometric progression, food production would grow in arithmetic progression. This would lead to deletion of material resources adding nothing to the productive sector. Malthus’s work is criticized on the basis that it did not consider the replenishability of natural resources through technological advancement.
One theory is that diversity of inputs (e.g., resources, perspectives) generates more diverse outputs. Hence, greater variation of inputs should enhance the chances of a breakthrough idea (Harvey, 2014). Creativity is treated as a process with inputs and outputs, an arrangement which is amenable to the traditional, linear I-P-O model of team
The scientific revolution revolved around intellectual changes that took place in Europe. These changes produced social values that allowed the European Enlightenment to come through easily. During the scientific revolution, European thinkers such as Isaac Newton, Rene Descartes and Copernicus tore down the series of “scientific” beliefs that were constructed by the ancients and kept by the church. To replace the existing flawed knowledge, scientists discovered true laws as they payed close attention to nature. The curiosity of the world started to spread, which lead to further discoveries.
Merton believed that the societies do not provide adequate means of achieving cultural goals. Taking the case of United States, to achieve the American Dream, the American society would need to provide access to education and employment. When the society do not do well enough individuals are faced with a gap between ‘what ought to be’ and ‘what is.’ Based on strain theory, Dr. Merton defined five types of deviance: • Conformity: When the person or group accepts cultural goals and the means of attaining them. • Innovation: This involves accepting the goals of a culture but the rejecting the traditional and/or legitimate means of attaining those goals. • Ritualism: the person or group reject cultural goals but accept the traditional and/or legitimate means to obtain cultural goals.
There were many factors that caused change in Europe during the period 1750-1870. It was a period of enlightenment and revolution and many changes occurred. This essay will attempt to address a sample of the most important factors. The essay will refer to the industrial revolution, the French revolution and the romantic revolution and how these impacted Europe and caused change. It will address how each event or movement changed Europe during the period in question.
But due to modernization taking place on human kinds they were forced to adapt to elimination of traditional beliefs which it main aim was for people to abandon their customs and adopt to their own heterogeneous systems which they imposed to the people. Rostows theory had imposed that there is an absence of technology and modern attitude to the indigenous people as they had no idea on modification this is as evidence that modernizations has brought about change on indigenous nations. In support of that Parsons also argued that modernization had taken place in results to that people were to abandon their own traditional beliefs and customs and values and adopt to the new world which is the world that is
For their part, economists base their argument on the notion of “carriage capacity” argument which was advanced by Malthus (25-28). According to Malthus, population growth is geometric growth, and substance is arithmetic growth. Until a positive check happens such as war and famine, the population growth just exceeds the carrying capacity. To prevent this undesired positive checks from happening, Malthus suggested adopting preventive checks, which will include giving fewer resources to the poor. Indeed, according to Malthus, if enough resources are given to the poor these later will end up exploiting the resources provided to them and multiply their numbers.
