i want to know short notes about thomas malthus's contributions in economy

Malthus basically said that if population increases, food and economic surplus decrease, thus later resulting in a decrease in population. This way, population and economic surplus stay balanced over the course of time and a decrease in population can be used to predict a positive economic trend and vice-versa.
