[quote:Anonymous Coward 590644:MV85ODA3ODlfMzQ5ODk3MDZfODY4RkZBMUE=] Here is a search string that will kick out some useful answers: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=economic+anthropology+moka+potlatch+cargo The core concept you need to wrap your mind around is about the limitations of human memory. Anthropologists know that the size of human tribes seldom exceeded 250 members. At that point or sooner the tribe would spontaneously bifurcate. They believe it has to do with the limitations of ability to retain memory of faces and relationships. This is related to gifting societies... people never truly "gift" anything. They are always expecting some reciprocity in one form or another. Now do your search for Narayana Kocherlakota who wrote a piece where he shows that "Money is social memory" and the point is that a trustworthy form of money was a better form of social memory than the human mind could supply. Important concept. [/quote]
2 things the human race will have to combine and achieve before we evolve.
if we don't, it will be like a stagnant parasite within us all.
