For Those Thinking About Taking Economics 113 This Fall...

For you to think about over the next three weeks: >Roughly 14000 years ago rough 100 humans made it to the Americas across the Bering Land Bridge. >A Malthusianly-unstressed preindustrial human population with reasonable access to food (whether hunter-gatherer, herder, or settled agriculture) roughly doubles in a generation of 25 years or so. >If the incipient Amerindian population had remained unstressed, how many Amerindians would there be today? >What implications does this have for how we think about the human history of the Americas between ca. 12000 BC and 1492?
