Must post first.

Please read the chapter on Population in your textbook and then watch at least three of the following short films from the W.H. Freeman and/or PBS Frontline World site (available at http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/). I would then like you to address one or more of the following questions/topics:

1)What can you often assume about the socio-economic circumstances andthe well-being of the population in a country (and the economicprospects of the country) by looking at its population characteristics(e.g., growth rates, age composition, its population pyramid shape,etc.)? Please use some specific examples.

2) Why do some LessDeveloped Countries (such as many in Sub-Saharan Africa) and some MoreDeveloped Countries (such as Japan and parts of Europe) face the exact oppositechallenges with regard to population growth? What types of unintendedconsequences can governmental policies (such as China’s “One-ChildPolicy”) seeking to deal with population challenges cause?  

3)Look at the maps in your text on population growth rates, mortalityrates, infant mortality rates, etc.. Are there patterns evident withregard to population growth rates, poverty, well-being, mortality? Arecertain areas of the world “overpopulated” or are other processes atwork here? What, if anything, should be done to deal with these issues?

You can use any 3 relevant films from the PBS Frontline World site at: http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/. Here are a few suggested films:
