Economic Development
- Does not refer to the total
development of a society.
- It is only a part or a
dimension of national
development.
- There can be economic
development, not only in
industrialization but also, in
Economics
-is the social science that
studies the production,
distribution and
consumption of goods and
services.
- merely a rise in the
Gross National Product.
Gross National
Product
- total amount of goods and
services that a country produces
in a given year.
- the measure of the value of all
final goods and services
produced and then sold in a
market at any given year
produced by firms with
Problems encountered:
An accelerating rapid growth
can aggravate the problem of
rising capital cost.
Everything normally taken
( land, living space, fresh
water and clean air),
becomes COSTLY in a
crowded and increasingly
As Population
INCREASES,
MORE capital outlays
are required to provide
the people with human
necessities.

 
Population growth has
outstripped increases in
food production.
The per capita food
production DROPPED
because of high population
growth rate.
.
It is estimated that at least
half of our children are either
MALNOURISHED or
UNDERNOURISHED.
If we are to avoid having
billions of people alive but
INADEQUATELY FED, we will
need to at least triple the
present food supply.
This could be enhanced by
-bringing new land under cultivation
-making better use of land already
cultivated
-increasing the food supply of food taken
from water sources
-producing non-agricultural food
-improving the processing and
distribution of food
-persuading people to eat food

►MORE schools,
classrooms and other
materials to be needed
by the children.
►The quality of education
is difficult to measure.
►Substantial portion of the
effort and money devoted
to primary education is
wasted.
►Statements on record by
the Secretary of Education
Jesli Lapus lament a
deterioration in the quality
of education.
One can infer that
educational
quality has been
a frequent
casualty of rapid
population HOME

 Direct demand that more
population creates the need for
more health services.
 Additional health workers will be

recruited by the Department of


Health to meet the increasing
demands for health services now
available and additional health
personnel for new types of
services and activities that will
have to be provided for.
 The number of units of the
various health services
needs to be increased
proportionally if the same
general level of health
services is to be
maintained.
 This does not take into

account increases in health

Overpopulation and
industrialization have
contributed in various
ways to the general
deterioration of the
environment upon which
humanity is completely
dependent for life.
Pollution
-most obvious aspect of
environmental deterioration.

Pollutants
- Reach us through the air we
breathe, water we drink, food
we eat and sound we hear.
 
 Air pollution is now recognized
not only as an agent that rots
nylon stockings, corrodes paint
and steel, blackens skies, and
washes on the clothes line and
damages millions of pesos worth
of crops annually.
 The country has not been able to
improve the air quality in spite of
the strenuous effort to control air
pollution because of population
growth.
 Even though the per capita amount
of pollution has declined., the
number of people increased.

More people = more


business + more industry
= attract more people
 
•As population grows, its
need for water also
grows.
•As population grows, so
do industries, which pour
into our water supplies a
vast array of
contaminants.
•As population grows so does
the need for increased
agricultural production which
results in a heavier water-
borne load of pesticides,
herbicides and nitrates.
•As a result, pollution spreads
in streams, rivers, lakes,
along the seashores and in
ground water.
HOME
 
More people will mean less
jobs because there are more
workers than the jobs
available.
If there are so many
unemployed, problems may
arise such as poverty,
juvenile delinquency and also
several number of crimes.
