About the brain thing... I'm aware of various ideas about early human development - the cooked food one supporting larger brains was just another that seemed to resonate with the thread. Perhaps plentiful raw food allowed initial expansion of the brain, but as this became scarce in a resource constr...

Does a shrinking population allow an economy to survive negative growth? Sort of along the lines of fewer people to supply with goods therefore more available for all. Or does it never work like that? I just thought if the numbers of people shrank at the same (or greater) rate than the number of job...
