Limited Wants, Unlimited Means A Reader On Hunter-Gatherer Economics And The Environment

by John M. Gowdy

Limited Wants, Unlimited Means A Reader On Hunter-Gatherer Economics And The Environment Synopsis

For roughly 99% of their existence on earth, Homo sapiens lived as small bands of hunter-gatherers in societies that appear to have solved problems of production, distribution, social equity, and environmental sustainability that our own culture seems incapable of addressing. Limited Wants, Unlimited Means examines the hunter-gatherer society and lifestyle, providing a brief introduction to the rich literature on non-agricultural societies. It examines the economics of traditional societies and presents a multifaceted investigation of how such societies function and what that can teach us in our own quest for sustainability and equality.
