Marx vs. Malthus on Population.


Both Malthus and Marx wrote about population and its relationship to growth. What did they write? Where did Marx differ from Malthus?

Martha E. Giménez (Professor Emerita of Sociology, University of Colorado, Boulder) explains that and more in simple, clear, language in her concise exposition paper "The population issue. Marx vs Malthus", originally published in 1973, in Den Ny Verden (Journal of the Institute for Development Research), Copenhagen, Denmark.

Prof. Giménez generously made it available from her website, where you'll also find many of her published and unpublished papers.

A great read for all, but very especially for those learning about Marxism.
