An essay on the principle of population : text, sources and background, criticism by T. R Malthus ( Book )
517 editions published between 1798 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 8,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"While millions face hunger, malnutrition, and starvation, the world's population is increasing by over 225,000 people per day, 80 million per year. In many countries, supplies of food and water are inadequate to support this many people, so the world falls deeper and deeper into what economists call the "Malthusian trap," named for the writer whose work, more than any other, brought attention to the population dilemma. Thomas Robert Malthus first published An Essay on the Principle of Population in 1798, and it quickly became the focal point of controversies which continue today. Simply put, it stated that human population increased at a geometric rate, while agricultural production could, at best, increase only arithmetically, thus resulting in shortages of food. While this idea was neither entirely new nor wholly indisputable, Malthus' clear and forceful statement sounded an alarm. Today, many nations and individuals are making efforts to curb runaway population growth, but for much of the world, the problem remains unsolved." "This new edition of the classic work contains the text of the original 1798 essay, along with later revisions made by the author. Background and source materials include excerpts from works by such writers as David Hume, Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, Charles Darwin, and Karl Marx. Contemporary commentary ranges widely through many schools of thought, from Lester R. Brown, Paul and Anne Ehrlich, and Garret Hardin to Julian Simon and Pope Paul VI. The evolution of Malthus' idea and its validity through the years are traced in Philip Appleman's comprehensive introduction."--Jacket

"To proceed to the point: I am most strongly inclined to suspect, that the attempt in most parts of the kingdom to increase the parish allowances in proportion to the price of corn, combined with the riches of the country, which have enabled it to proceed as far as it has done in this attempt, is, comparatively speaking, the sole cause, which has occasioned the price of provisions in this country to rise so much higher than the degree of scarcity would seem to warrant, so much higher than it would do in any other country where this cause did not operate."
