Overpopulation has a definite effect on a country's economy. First of all,when countries are overpopulated, they hardly have enough food to support themselves,never mind the hope of having a surplus to sell. This can contribute to a low GDP per capita which is effect overpopulation has on the economy. In an attempt to save the people from the starvation,the government will most likely have to rely on foreign debt. Many environmental,social & economic problems either stem from or are increased in magnitude by the overpopulation problem. The earth does not contain enough resources to indefinitely sustain the current enormous population growth. There is a limited arable of land and living space. Another resource which cannot keep up with an increasing population is water. The supply of fresh water is limited. Forests are being torn down as more wood and land is needed to support our ever- growing population. The loss of these forests lead to extinction of plants and animals. These plants could contain cures for diseases that will never be found. Urban areas are expanding, polluting the air and water systems.
