Mankind’s journey from hunter-gatherers to coins as the instrument for doing commerce

Below is a diagram I created showing the evolution of mankind from hunter-gatherers to the development of coins as the instrument for doing commerce. I developed this diagram by combining information from these two fabulous books:

  1. Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith
  2. Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond

I find it so fascinating to think about a how one thing led to another, which led to another, and so forth.
