Based on your understanding, do you think Malthus was right? Why or why not?

Most of society, eager to make advancements for land production, food, and employment moved to cities and began working in factories during this time and it sparked the Industrial Revolution from 1760-1840. New farming equipment was formed, medicine and health care improved, scientific understanding and vaccines were underway, and the population continued to grow faster than ever.

Malthus (born in 1766) believed that the population was growing too fast. He calculated that there would not be enough food to feed the population. He believed that only war, famine, and disease would result over resource shortages. He published his findings and calculations in 1798.
