Paper 1- Debate 2 10/5/2009 World Population Debate I believe that the world is not over populated; in fact, the majority of the world population doesn’t use their resources efficiently or effectively.

The only solution to this problem is to create a globally accepted system of resource openness as well as allocation.

This misapprehension relates to the proper distinction concerning the scarcity of resources because of overpopulation or the shortage of resources to adequately equip a population because of a lack of education and resource effectiveness. Throughout the world there are nations and communities that struggle for their existence because of famine due to poverty and poor education, not lack of resources. For example, hunger throughout certain sections in Africa is from state wars, poor political structure and horrible foundations for non-economy based societies. “Although Africa has the fastest growing population on Earth, South Asia is the most densely populated area in the world” (Pulsipher 317).

Although China has a larger population, India is projected to surpass China as the most populated
