The reason for the dismal theories of Ricardo and Malthus not becoming true, Heilbroner suggests, is that we have been saved by technology. More food could be produced because fertilizer and hybrids produced much higher yields per acre. But these successes have occurred in a period of benign nature. What do we do now, when it appears that we face rapid population growth, an increasingly hostile nature (climate change), and a matured agricultural technology with limited chance from substantial improvement? It appears that the rapid population growth really depends on women deciding not to have a large number of children. In the areas that are producing a lot of children, like the Moslem or tribal worlds or India, the role of women is severely restricted. But the U. S. has ZPG except for immigration. Further, it appears that we do not have the technology, let alone the will, to reverse climate change before it becomes disastrous.With these negative facts staring us in the face, to what degree do you think it likely that the gloomy predictions of too many people creating a demographic catastrophe could occur? Why might they occur and why might they not?
