Our country has already shown that with we can not follow the increase of unlimited exponential growths with out exhaustible resources. Social problems are conditions that at least some people in a community view as being undesirable. There are considered to be certain social problems that are recognized as a “real threat” and then there are some that are not recognized at all. Further more in America there are social problems that concern society on a certain level but are not considered a threat to the economical outlook. We also have social conditions that are recognized to begin with, then are analyzed to a specific curriculum, possibly to a scientific method, and then they might not be considered as a social problem to the majority. First, the objective is considered. Then, the condition has to revolve a gap and a condition. Thirdly, a majority of the population has to consider the problem to actually be one. Finally, the problem would then have to be solvable.
