It is exactly what you should expect from evolutionary psychology.
Rising population, economy that does not keep up, then glitch in
weather.  Once the fighting starts, the effects of fighting on the
economy makes it worse.  Eventually the population falls to the point
the economy/ecosystem to population improves and that shuts off wars
till the population grown again.

It's been this way since humans got more organized than the big cats
that previously kept our numbers down.
