Developed worlds have been devoting real efforts in economy growth since Industrial Revolution and have eventually succeeded in feeding their populations. Thus， some propose that stronger economy is the only approach in eradicating famine and poverty in the global context whereas some others argue that it should not be encouraged for the sake of environmental protection.
The state of being poor and hungry could indeed be improved out of economic development. The two fundamental reasons of this condition are mainly caused by the low amount of income on average and uneven social distribution. In dealing with the first， thriving businesses simply boost the social fortune like food， houses and a variety of products in aggregate， an objective and solid foundation of more resources for each member in the society. As for the second reason， it is extensively acknowledged that the majority of social resources are held by the elite groups in all social forms， but even under this circumstance， an ordinary citizen of a modern developed nation may worry less on the provision of food or welfare services comparing with a normal medieval farmer. As well as those， this method is clearly more humane and sustainable than others such as plundering other societies and eliminating the lower class.
A developing and prospering economy is commonly associated with environmental disruption. This is inevitable because people could not properly handle industrial waste with initial technology and the disposal results in pollution of all sorts. However， cleaner energy is generated and more by-products are reused and recycled with the progress of science and technology， leading to the reduction of pollution in the long term. What is more， the second idea mentioned is ridiculous and infeasible as the human survival and comfort is the top priority for common people and the authorities.
To conclude， I believe the development of economy can not be halted so more people can be relieved from poverty and hunger. Meanwhile， the awareness of protecting environment should be raised before it is too late.
