Who proposed the doctrine that population increase in a geometric ratio while the means of subsistence increases in an arithmetic ratio?

Charles Darwin proposed this idea. He borrows from the work of the political economist Robert Malthus, who had a similar argument in his Principles of Population.I found a website that gave me a very informative, easy-to-read summary of it all.**It's actually Thomas Malthus that wrote Principles of Population and he is the one who directly states this idea first

What is the name of this symbol that thomas harriot developed that he saw on a native american's arm?

This story is almost certainly false. The claim is that Harriot saw a tattoo which resembled overlapping and opposing chevrons (>< imagine these two moved so that the points overlap); he is then supposed to have created the signs for "greater than" and "less than" from this single symbol.In fact, Harriot never used those signs in his mathematical studies. They only appeared in a book published after his death and were almost certainly the idea of some other scholar - and nothing to do with native American tattoos.
