According to Malthusian theory of population, population increases in a geometrical ratio, whereas food supply increases in an arithmetic ratio.
This disharmony would lead to 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.
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 is 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.
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.

The Malthusian theory is correct because the prosperity of humans depend upon the resources available in this world. Suppose there is some organic content that makes some percentage of earth's mass. And suppose that humans and other living things are formed of that organic content. And further suppose that humans need that organic content to survive i.e. humans consume that organic content. Now more the humans born, more is the requirement for that organic content and lesser will be the amount of that organic content. Hence no absolute prosperity. That proves the Malthusian theory.
This theory, dated 1821, stated that population tends to increase at a faster rate than its means of subsistence and that unless it is checked by moral restraint of disaster, widespread poverty and degradation inevitably result. This theory is more relevant today than the day it was written. Today's world has translated this theory into practise
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 disasters, 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.
A malthusian couple recognizes that the population will grow faster than the food supply can support it if couples produce too many children, so they exercize sexual restraint or use birth control practices to limit the number of children they have as a duty to the overall population. Based of "An Essay on the Principle of Population" by Robert Malthus.

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.
