 "The Population Myth: Part II"
In demographic transition, changes from traditional agrarian economies to modern industrial and urbanized ones involve a change from conditions of high fertility and mortality to conditions of low fertility and mortality.
If demographic transition has not occurred in the Third World (as a population-bomber like David Brower has suggested), it is largely because semifeudal elites, military satraps, and a pernicious domestic bourgeoisie have harshly repressed movements for social change.
All the statistics that are projected by demographers today are heavily conditioned by various unspoken values, such as a desire for pristine "wilderness" or for mere open land, a pastoral concept of nature, or a love of cultivated land.

Nevertheless, even at the low levels found in post-war Mozambique, education, infrastructure, and agricultural technology are key factors that distinguish poorer households from richer households and also point the way to poverty reduction in the future.
