Television Personal computers 17 When the economy moves from point D to E in Table A, the opportunity cost of the computer in terms of televisions is A 3. B falls as more computers are produced. C increases as more computers are produced. D is meaningless because the cost of computers cannot be expressed in terms of televisions.
This meeting provided the initial basis for a conference on population and conflict, held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology one year later to review the evidence at hand.
This report reflects the worthy contributions made by the participants attending the conference and highlights some distinctive patterns relating population to conflict behaviour at individual, national, and international levels.
I believe that this report calls attention to new issues of concern in the field of population. I am grateful to Dr. Linda Sherry, for their constructive revisions and valuable suggestions.
I thank them for the work and effort put into the production of this report as well as to Diane Beth Hyman for her organizational and editorial support for the study as a whole and to Carol Conway as research assistant. Rapidly growing numbers of people create social and economic burdens which cannot be ignored.
Thus, the prominence of population variables in shaping political behaviour places population and conflict in close proximity. This report highlights some of the linkages between population variables and conflict behaviour. Despite the international communitys increasing awareness of population issues, a curious dichotomy continues to prevail between those who reduce population matters strictly to questions of fertility and mortality, rather than their broader implications, and those who view population issues in social and economic terms.
Yet among both factions there remains a remarkable disregard for the potential political implications of population factors and their possible im pact on conflict behaviour. More importantly, there is a continued lack of awareness by both policy-making and academic communities of the close links between population and security.
At a time when military expenditures are escalating and insecurities abound, the challenges mount in an already burdened international environment. It would be the height of myopia to continue to disregard the increasing evidence concerning the relationship of population variables to conflict dynamics.

Views at the World Population Conference The World Population Conference ofheld in Bucharest, Romania, was a landmark in the international communitys growing recognition of population issues.
In the wake of calls for a New International Economic Order, the World Population Conference drew attention to the relationship between population and development and to competing strategies for change.
At least four different perspectives were represented. They illustrate the continuing diversity in the international communitys appreciation of, and approach to, population issues. Eliminating poverty and conditions of inequality would, it was argued, result in fertility decline.
Direct interventions would not contribute as effectively to fertility decline as would social and economic development. Second was the view that countries do, in fact, have population problems that directly hinder development.
High rates of population growth were recognized as having a detrimental effect on development.alphabetnyc.comty and Choice in a One-Person Economy Opportunity Cost • The concepts of constrained choice and scarcity are central to the discipline of economics.
