Foraging societies with high levels of economic development (Politically-Oriented and Physical-Wealth-Oriented societies) can be identified by certain property and distribution characteristics (44).
PO societies have significantly higher taxation/tribute, and lower incidence of slavery. PWO is significantly negatively associated with taxation/tribute and intangible wealth, and positively associated with inheritance. Neither group has any significant relationship to food sharing, market/barter exchange, food storage, or transfer of wealth at marriage.
