Population Growth

For this paper you will need to find two or more articles about human population growth.  One article should be looking at the negative impacts of population growth and one should be looking at the positive effects of population growth.  The positive effects of population growth may be  harder to find in articles, but look for articles by economists.  The articles can come from newspapers, magazines, or off the Internet, but if you get articles from the Internet be sure they are from a reputable news organization.  In your paper, contrast the positive and negative impacts of population growth that you found in the articles you read.  Do you think that population growth will have a negative or positive impact on your standard of living?  Be sure to look at this in both a short term (i.e., 50 years) and a long term view (100-200 years).  Make sure your paper is well-organized and well-written.  Cite your references in the body of your paper, include a reference list at the end.

Your paper should be typed, double-spaced, 12-point font, with 1-inch margins.
