      ISTR claims that h&g is more efficient than farming? (It takes a lot less work.) And definitely more environment-friendly?

      >I too have issues with his explanation. If one looks at Natufian sites in the north here in Israel today one sees  people living in settled communities sans farming, thousands of yrs before and they were acquiring things. Same with Indians living on the western coast of Canada, both cultures simply learned how to exploit the natural resources around them and lived with surpluses, particularly those in Canada, no need to farm when one can hunt and gather to its fullest extent.
