Causes And Consequences Of The World Population Evolution

This study intends to realize a critical debate on the content and the dynamics of the theoretical concepts connected to the world population growth, trying to explain the origin and sense of the expression demographic explosion and other expressions that completed, detailed or disproved this syntagm. The research is founded on the idea that the debate on the terminology used in present to define the demographic evolution, the presentation of the global and the differential components of the population increase, the main factors and evolutive scenarios of the world population, throw light correctly on the dimension of the phenomenon and represent a guide for the demographic present time. Based on these relevant aspects, the study leads to the idea that our planet is structured in two diverging worlds: a poor one, still in a demographic expansion and a rich one, in a demographic stagnation, even in a virtual decline.
