Thomas Malthus
   1766-1834
        Malthus’ postulations
• Overproduction of young
• Population overextending natural
  resources
• Irresponsibility of the lower classes
     How important is Malthus?
"In October 1838, that is, fifteen months after I had begun
   my systematic inquiry, I happened to read for
   amusement Malthus on Population, and being well
   prepared to appreciate the struggle for existence which
   everywhere goes on from long- continued observation of
   the habits of animals and plants, it at once struck me that
   under these circumstances favourable variations would
   tend to be preserved, and unfavourable ones to be
   destroyed. The results of this would be the formation of a
   new species. Here, then I had at last got a theory by
   which to work".

Charles Darwin, from his autobiography. (1876)
 Johann-Heinrich von Thunen, 1783-1850
 – Land Use Modeling


• Interplay between markets,
  production and geography
   – Rural economies
   – degrees of remoteness and
     degree of rurality
   – the costs of overcoming the
     friction of space (economic
     disadvantage)
   – innovations in transport make
     rurality a fickle concept
von Thunen
