If you take Maslow’s Hierarchy and other concepts of human needs, you can easily single out several levels on which people can be brought together. The first level is the physical requirements – including food. The food topic is universal. It can unite humanity. Food preparation is an ancient element of human culture, a universal cultural detail. The quantity and quality of food impacts health, including reproduction of human kind, affecting demographics and as a result the future of the economy.
The requirement of food is a basic biological requirement, common for everyone, independent of age, race and religion. Today food can become a mechanism uniting humanity and providing solutions for demographic development.
Population growth and dynamics influence the future of the global economy and humanity as a whole. Perhaps one of the most famous projections for the growth of the population, are those introduced by the UN. Based on them we saw the introduction of the global concept of food security by WHO. All of these concepts are based on the concept by Sergei Kapitsa, according to which the hyperbolic growth of the population will reach 11.36 billion and will stabilize, at which point population growth will cease.
Based on his theory, global demographic transition, accompanied by rapid changes in the speed of population growth will lead to significant changes human development.
We know that Kapitsa was looking for a logical basis for the hyperbolic growth of the population, and found it in the relationship between historical events and growing connectivity of humanity. However, the fact that growth had slowed in the second half of the last century, lead to certain inconsistencies in his theories.
