  • Boserup's Theory
    • This theory was developed in 1965
    • The theory cannot be tested because it does not take emigration of immigration into consideration
    • Rise in population would increase demand for food
    • This theory could relate to the UK and USA because they have developed new methods of food production to reduce poverty rates and adapt to social constraints.
    • As food production increases there will be enough available for the population
    • Disagreed with Malthus' theory becasue However, Boserup argued that in those times of pressure, people will find ways to increase the production of food by increasing workforce, machinery, fertilizers
    • CASE STUDY: Mauritius - The rate of natural increase was very great, and there was a great pressure on the country for resources because of this increasing population. It was then that the government had to intervene. It promotedfamily planning, restricted early marriage, provided improved health care and looked to improve the status of women
  • Rise in population would increase demand for food
  • An increase in population would stimulate technologists to increase food production.
