Transcript of Thomas Malthus
By: Riley, Tahlia, Tamica and Samuel
What and When
Malthus also studied the priniciples of political economy. Malthus's most famous work, which he published in 1798, was an Essay on the principle of poopulation as it affects the Future Improvement of Society. In it, Malthus raised doubts about whether a nation could ever reach a point where laws would no longer be required, and in which everyone lived prosperously and harmoniously.
Thomas Robert Malthus was born near Guildford Surrey in Feburary 1766 (the 13th). Malthus was a economist and a demographer. He had three children (Lucy, Emily and Henry), and went to Cambridge University for a Masters degree in 1791.
Malthus chose a conservative path, taking holy orders in 1797, despite the fact that he and his contemporaries thought of him not as a biologist but as a political economist.
Malthus died on 23rd of December 1834.
