With India as an example we will discuss Malthus, the population growth theory and see if Malthus theory was maybe mistaken in the past but has some valid aspects today.
Malthus defined two types of checks to population growth: preventive checks and positive checks. Preventive checks are those that affect the birth rate and include marrying at a later age. He also called these ?moral restraint?. So Malthus stated that a family should not have any children before they cannot make sure that they can supply their kids. According to Thomas Malthus, positive checks are those, that increase the death rate. These include war, plague, disease and famine. Malthus felt that the fear of famine or the development of famine was also a major impetus to reduce the birth rate.

The lack of supply of oil and the excess demand, scarcity will occur. Even though scarcity of oil existed before, shortages did not happen before the government imposed. Another outcome of price ceiling is the illegal economic activities that may occur. Because the maximum price that the government pointed is less than the equilibrium price, producers would feel that they could earn more money.
