For the first time in many years, nations like Japan can no longer guarantee employment for their large population and they must consider a new welfare option. These are all economic situations that are new and indicate that population has an adverse affect on the world economic policies. Conclusion

This report aimed to discuss some of the relationships between population growth and economic development. Economic growth will continue to be an objective for every nation in our highly globalized and technologically advanced world economy. The world has been doing all in its power to try to duplicate the United States and Chinese economic accomplishments. Each nation will continue to attempt to grow their own Gross Domestic Products but this is no guarantee that these nation's citizens will benefit. The Gross Domestic Product is used as an indicator of the world's economic growth and well-being because the Gross Domestic Product represents a total value of all products and services bought and sold. Our current economic system creates a class system of rich and poor. Each nation grows but this economic success inadvertently leaves behind a large number of poor citizens.

It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or for depletion and degradation of natural resources. Data are in current U.S. dollars. Dollar figures for GDP are converted from domestic currencies using single year official exchange rates. For a few countries where the official exchange rate does not reflect the rate effectively applied to actual foreign exchange transactions, an alternative conversion factor is used. (GEOHIVE, 2005)

Communities that understand the toll population growth has on the environment are more likely to take action to protect the environment and conserve natural resources by monitoring population growth and encouraging restoration of the environment rather than encouraging larger families (Mulligan, 2006). Community actions are more likely to be tolerated than mandates that declare population growth must be limited by force (Mulligan, 2006). Evaluate Effects of Human Activities on Ecosystems

Population and Consumption There are a few different links between poverty and population. The text notes (p.169) that "much of the recent international migration has been from the developing world to the developed world," and that many people migrate because they realize that their best chance to escape poverty is to move to another country. Yet, rapidly growing populations are also a contributing factor to poverty in the developing world. In

The modern separation from the means of production does not negate the fact that nearly everything we need to sustain us is provided by the earth, either by natural or artificial means. The earth gives us all the materials we need and many we desire and in turn she is changed. She becomes less able with each passing day and each lost natural acre to continue to provide. Though the

Urbanization Earth also witnessed a phenomenon of urbanization or shifting of population toward cities. The increase in the number of cities has been associated with that of repeated ecological disaster. Rapid regional deforestation, the depletion of ground-water aquifers, accelerated soil erosion, plant genetic simplification, periodic outbreaks of disease among pest species and domesticated animals, large-scale human malnutrition, and the development and spread of epidemics are some of the results we have

At a most simplistic level, the growth of the human population generates higher levels of consumerism. And the higher levels of consumption place supplementary strains on the already scarce natural resources. Additionally, the incremental levels of consumption translate into higher levels of waste. This waste comes from both individual consumers, as well as from industrial agents and it directly impacts the quality of the water as well as the

Population growth is emerging as on the most contentious issues facing society today. What makes the issue so contentious is its overall impact on human behavior and its implications for worldwide economic develop. Until now, economic development was primarily measured by GDP growth. Gross Domestic Product is simply the value of all goods and services produced within a given country. This figure is in turn measured by both the growth
