Answer 1

A)

1- I disagree with this! The unstable population is a main factor in the destabilization of the
economy, and if we keep growing as we are, then the economy will finally topple over outright.
We have enough consumers, I believe, to keep the economy running long enough to stabilize it;
no more people are needed. If anything, we need a stable population over a stable economy,
because once we have the people stable, we can begin to re-stabilize the things that they are
interdependent with. (Harrenstein, 2012)

2- This statement says too many things to be wholly agreeable or disagreeable. I disagree
when they state that the "world will never run out of resources," because, as vast as the world
is, it is finite. It can and will be used up, if we continue like this. The rest of it is agreeable,
because we can use technology to find substitutes, and we can use this technology to help us
reduce resource waste. We just should not wait until we absolutely need to, because who
knows how long it will take to develop and perfect the substitute-finding technology? We could
put ourselves in horribly dire straits just by procrastinating on this. We should work to reduce
resource waste right now, so that there's resources left to save later on. (Harrenstein, 2012)

B)

This would probably help solve the problem of expansion into increasingly wild areas by
humans. If we stopped growing, we wouldn't need to expand further and force the world even
more out of balance. This would of course leave us with the current problem of world's
population. (Harrenstein, 2012)

Answer 2

India has tried to limit their population but has been successful. Indians still believe that they
need several children for work and care, but they don't use birth control because it decreases
their chance of birthing a male. However, China has successfully cut their birth rate in half due
to a strongly enforced government program. Couples that only have one child, receive many
rewards from the government for that child. Reducing high birth rates leads to a slower
population growth. (Quizlet Inc, 2017)
