How does population size, distribution, age. Technological progress is slow and is matched by proportional increases in population, so that output per capita is stable around a constant level. In the post-Malthusian regime, the growth rates of technology and total output increase.

Population growth absorbs much of the growth of output, but income per capita does rise slowly. Unit 2 Technology, population, and growth. Themes and capstone units. History, instability, Unlike Adam Smith, whose book The Wealth of Nations had appeared just 22 years earlier, Malthus did not offer an optimistic vision of economic progress—at least as far as ordinary farmers or workers were concerned.

The general trend in the food and agricultural situation in developing countries is a slow-down in production with many countries showing a negative balance resulting in the importation of basic food stuffs and an avoidable drain of foreign reserves.
