A detailed exploration of the influence and utility of Thomas Malthus' model of population growth and economic changes in Europe since the nineteenth century. This important contribution to current discussions on theories of economic growth includes discussion of issues ranging from mortality and fertility to natural resources and the poverty trap.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of inequality in contemporary Japan. demographic stagnation. Of late, issues of social inequality have assumed a new political centrality in many western societies. It examines inequality in labour and employment, in welfare and family, in education and social mobility, in the urban-rural divide, and concerning immigration, ethnic minorities and gender. However, in much discussion of these issues, sociological approaches to the analysis of social inequality have been disregarded, especially in the work of economists and epidemiologists.

Sustained economic growth of a country’ has a positive impact on the national income and level of employment . Economic growth can be defined as a positive change in the level of goods and services produced by a country over a certain period of time

Sustained economic growth of a country’ has a positive impact on the national income and level of employment, which further results in higher living standards. Economic growth can be defined as a positive change in the level of goods and services produced by a country over a certain period of time. An important characteristic of economic growth is that it is never uniform or same in all sectors of an economy For example, in a particular year, the telecommunication sector of a country has marked a significant contribution in economic growth whereas the mining sector has not performed well as far as the economic growth of the country- is concerned.

Economic growth is the increase in the inflation-adjusted market value of the goods and services produced by an economy over time

Economic growth is the increase in the inflation-adjusted market value of the goods and services produced by an economy over time. It is conventionally measured as the percent rate of increase in real gross domestic product, or real GDP. Growth is usually calculated in real terms - . inflation-adjusted terms – to eliminate the distorting effect of inflation on the price of goods produced.

In recent years it has become apparent that the pattern of population growth is consistent with the predictions of the Malthusian model. Studies on the pre-industrial epoch in a wide range of countries show positive income elasticities of mortality and a strong positive correlation between real wages and marriage rates. Negative shocks to population, such as the Black Death, were reflected in higher real wages and faster population growth. Moreover, the prediction of the Malthusian model that differences in technology should be reflected in population density, but not in standards of living, is also borne out. However, the empirical implications of the Malthusian model are more complex than simply a tendency of real wage to revert to its long-run equilibrium level together with slow population growth. Many factors have impinged on the fertility and mortality rates. A most striking feature of the preindustrial epoch is the simultaneous effect of contradictory forces. This volume studies these forces pushing towards both growth and poverty, and evaluates the utility of the Malthusian model as a tool for understanding demographic dynamics today.
