What is the Neo Malthusian theory?
A neo malthusian is somebody of malthus beliefs neomalthusians on population growth and control the neo-malthusian theorists may be presented as a splinter group. essentially they agree with malthus that control of population is inevitable. however they disagree with malthus that factors like war and famine are the key to population control and reject such simplistic notions. instead they promote a number of ideals for exapmle planned parenthood as a method of population control.

malthusian theory -it is general theory of population. optimum theory - it is a scientific theory of population. malthusian theory it is static… in nature. optimum theory it is dynamic in nature
According to Malthusian theory of population, population increases in a geometrical ratio, whereas food supply increases in an arithmetic ratio. This disharmony would lead t…o widespread poverty and starvation, which would only be checked by natural occurrences such as disease, high infant mortality, famine, war or moral restraint. His main contribution is in the agricultural sector. According to this theory there are two steps to control the population: preventative and positive checks. Preventative means control in birth rate, and uses of different methods to control birth; and positive checks means natural calamities, war, etc. His theory was wrong because Malthus only considered two factors when he established his basic graph: food supply and population growth. Other factors such as improvements in technology proved him wrong. He was right at his time but development made him wrong. If it wasn't for outside influences on population growth and food supply, his mathematical reasoning which proved his theory and was right.
The Anti-Malthusian theory is the idea that survival supplies will not run scarce and the population of the world will control itself naturally.
in a classical theory says there is perfect competition whereas NE classical states imperfect competition in international trade.
Malthusian theory of population is based on food supply with population growth that is whereas population is growing at a geometrical progression food supply on the hand is at… arithmetic progression whiel on the other hand geographic transition theory is based on birth rates and death rates the theory says that population cycle begins with a fall in death rates ,continues with a phase of rapid population growth and concluding with a decline in the birth rates.
Malthus' theory of population can be used to explain the dynamics of the relationship between population and resources in less developed territories. Since the Caribbean i…s considered to be less developed in comparison to other nation-states eg the US, France, England etc... we can say to the Malthusian theory of population can be applied to explain population-resource issues in the Caribbean, however it is limited in its scope and explanations, due to the diversity of the individual Caribbean territories themselves. Marx's theory of population, tends to be a bit more plausible in explaining the relationship between population and available resources, with respect to the Caribbean. From a Historical perspective, given the fact of plantation slavery and colonialism, the Marxist theory of population provides a better explanation of population in the Caribbean when compared with Malthus's theory of population.
In Nigeria the argument is relevant because is for reducing the family size. According to Malthusians theory there are two ways of controlling population these are ;prevention… and positive checks.prevention here means controll in birth rate, and the use of different methods to control birth while positive checks means natural calamities like war e.t.c. to match the available resources for supporting the individuals. This agree to Malthus argument that there should be a balance between population growth and the means of production.
Malthus was an economist who proposed that human population grows exponentially but food production does not, hence starvation is inevitable. He did, however, argue that there… are positive checks on population growth ( ie, plagues, wars) and preventive checks (lower birth rate) to limit exponential growth for too long a time, but scarcity will continue.
The neo-conflict theory is a theory that is based on the writing of Karl Marx. It is the idea that conflict in society is based on the product of an exploitive relationshi…p between the social classes of society.

The Malthusian Theory has been criticized by a number of people. These criticism are based on the grounds that Malthus' pessimistic conclusion were not a part of Western E…uropean countries, it is based on law of diminishing returns and it is also compared with increase in food production.
Malthusian theory in which people multiply will grow at a rate faster than resources. He believed that there are natural checks on the human population like disease, natural d…isasters, and war in order to maintain social order and keep the human race from dying out from not having enough resources. Based on this theory no action from any party or institution to prevent mass catastrophes or disasters from effecting certain populations because those proportions of the population need to die off in order for the rest of the population to live and have enough resources to survive. One of the counters of Malthusian theory is that the world population is actually leveling off because of demographic transition. Demographic transition states that with greater wealth and education the birth rate decreases. Malthus also doesn't recognize the role of technology, efficiency, and human ingenuity as a factor that overcomes the problem of scarce resources.
The DTM is used to classify countries into general groups. Hence, it is unable to take into account evolutionary changes in the process of population growth and classify diver…se population into distinct but coherent stages of the development process. Neo-Malthusians argue that the long-term fertility of a population depends on the most rapidly-breeding subgroups within the population. In the short term, the overall population growth rate may slow as most of the existing people have fewer children, but if a rapidly-breeding subgroup sustains its high fertility, it will eventually expand its numbers and restore the whole population to high fertility. This is similar to the evolution of resistance to pesticides in insects, and to antibiotics among pathogens: the first applications kill large numbers, but a few surviving resistant individuals may eventually make good on the losses through exponential growth. In other words, a criticism of the DTM is that it is only valid if the fertility-lowering social changes that caused the DTM in present-day industrial nations permanently lower the fertility of every subgroup within each nation. Garrett Hardin doubted that purely voluntary birth control could achieve that result; Hardin argued that voluntary birth control merely selects against the people who will use it
The prefix "neo" means new. The analytic theory, or really its the psychoanalytic theory, was pretty much all of Freud's work and theories This includes his psychosexual phase…s of development and further involvement with the id. ego, and superego. Therefore, the neoanalytic theory is any work or theories that have branched from Freud's work but ended up changed due to opposition. Few theorists agreed with sexuality being to intensely associated with human development. There are a few particular theorists that are well known as neoanalysts who include Jung, Adler, Horney (Horn-eye), Murray, and Erikson.
Neo-Malthusians are proponents of controlling population growth so that there is enough food supply for the future. They believe that as the population grows, food supplie…s dwindle.
