Abstract: The future of humans on this tiny planet earth has entered a grim beginning in the midst of rapidly growing technological progress. How not, human life whose population is growing fast is not comparable to food as a source of life that grows slowly. This study aims to calculate the cross point or equilibrium point between population and food using the population series and food series of Thomas Robert Malthus original and the results of its development by Matius Irsan Kasau. The data and methods used are types of secondary data sourced from the Indonesian Central Statistics Agency (BPS), which is processed by a mathematical method that compares the population with food in each series. The results of research with Indonesian data in 2010 showed that for the original Malthus theory with the number of children on average per couple of 4 people, the distance between generations 25 years, 75 years of life expectancy, population 237 million, food 66.5 million tons obtained equilibrium point occurred in 2085, namely in the third generation. As for Malthus’s theory of development results with an average number of children of 2.6 people, a distance between 23 years generation, and 69 years of life expectancy, the equilibrium point was obtained in 2171, namely the seventh generation of the current generation.
