did the Greeks and Romans not at times enjoy growth by means of social cooperation under the division of labour?
I am trying to decide whether to major in economics, and will be starting at Texas A&M in the fall. This summer I have been traveling around Europe studying antiquities of Western civilization. Yesterday I was blown away by the Greek and Roman opulence on display at the British Museum.
Do modern western economies trace all the way back to Greek times, and was this actually passed onto modern western culture via the Romans.
I am reading your new book this summer and reading in the library at LSE. any advice you could give a possible undergrad economics major would be appreciated.
