Example text

While we’re on the topic of ‘we’, let’s take a moment to acknowledge how profoundly important the many forms of ‘we’ are in our lives, and how remote from reality the neoclassical economists’ model of humanity as a collection of isolated individual utility-maximisers really is. The many forms of ‘we’ Individuals attempt to understand the world they’re embedded in, and also to manipulate it. However, the influence of any single individual in isolation is limited. This is why we organise ourselves into various groups – for instance, political parties, firms, families, clubs and religious communities.

We are, in the end, stardust. Our connectedness to each other can be recognised in a multitude of ways – not only in the similarity of our body chemistry and our genes, but also in our need for company, for communication and for making deals with each other. As a social species, experience and evolutionary pressures long ago taught us that we cannot long survive as isolated individuals, whereas we can do almost anything if we band together in highly structured groups that divide up specialist tasks and collaborate on projects – whether the project is to hunt down a few zebras in the East African savannah and turn them into meat, leather and clothing, or to build a space probe capable of sending pictures back from the edge of the solar system.

In that civilisation, people would have to work for subsistence every day. It would be impossible to build villages or cities. One year’s work output would be one year’s food output, and nothing more. If we increase agricultural labour productivity by a factor of ten, however, then one farming family can produce an annual food supply sufficient to nourish ten families. That leaves nine families in a position to follow other occupations. How is it determined what these occupations will be? In this scenario, we’re already past the stage of Stone Age farming villages, and we’re well removed from the hunter-gatherer way of life in which humanity spent most of the past 100,000 years.
