Abstract

The study analises the current effects of Malthus's law in the economic and social evolutionary processes.The current demand for agricultural products shows an increasing trend, due to population growth and rise in incomes. Unprecedented potential consumption levels cast unknown scenarios for the world. As the world will soon be faced with Malthus Law and its unavoidable consequences, the main issue to point out is if supply will be able to cope with demand. Thus greater importance is accorded to the study of agricultural markets that are gradually becoming the main factor of growth in the global economy, considering the spread of globalization process. For that, we aim at highlighting the growth factors in agricultural markets that will affect global economy in the short run.
