To paraphrase Gerry Adams:

Malthus only has to be lucky once. The cornucopians have to be lucky all the time.

I've said all along that the growth of the worlds population, and the reduction of farms was inevitably moving us toward Malthus being proved right. Regarding the wealth of the modern world, and Malthus being off the mark, take a walk through India sometime, or most of the world, but heck, now you can take a walk through most of the cities in the US, the poor and homeless are more every day. There have been poor with us since time began, even in the midst of this wealth, it's only in the west that the poor, some, were comparatively wealthy, mainly since Johnson in the US.
