In the late 1700s, Thomas Malthus, an English philosopher, predicted that the human population would
eventually grow too large to be sufficiently supported by the food available. As a result, he argued that
many people will die from food shortages bringing the population level back to a “sustainable level.”
Regarding the growth models that we have discussed in class, what parameter does the “sustainable
level” refer to and which model accounts for it? (2 points)
What did Malthus not foresee when creating his theory, and how did that affect population growth?
