Still image from Out of the Past: Artisans and Traders

Researchers explore the link between economic and cultural evolution. Hunter-gatherers and early agriculturalists had simple divisions of labor, but today people make a living in many ways. The proliferation of occupations and the extreme economic interdependence of today are the result of increasing job specialization, which causes society to continually undergo restructuring. Part of the "Out of the Past" series.
