If anybody likes to inform about another "homoestatic model" that works much better than the Malthusian system, I guess to read this English introduction into the "niche model" from Johann Peter Süßmilch: http://www.wiwi.uni-muenster.de/wisoge/md/personen/fertig_g/download/hajnal.pdf

In Historical Demography this point of view is definitely confuted! There was never a "Malthusian trap" in the human history! See, for example: David Levine: Reproducing families - The Political Economy of English Population History, p. 68 ff. The demographic homeostatis which aimed at balancing the hands of producers with the mouths of consumers can be explained much better with the "niche model" from Johann Peter Süßmilch (1741!). And with transition from patrimoniat to dominion the homeostatic system was dissolved!
