I'm interested in paleoeconomics, that's cool. We need a flintstone index.
I suppose one could compare this with Daley's GPI schemes which does
support stagnation or declining standards in recent times. Altho that all
seems pretty ropey to me, Daley's valuations are highly speculative
intuitions. I can't believe Wallerstein was just extrapolating from Africa,
if he's that thick it's abuse of tenure. What was his article? Got a ref
anyone? This is seriously interesting.
