  1. Degree of technological adoption in 1000 BCE, 0 BCE, and 1500 BCE is positively associated with per capita income and technological development in 2002 (66).Comin, Diego - Was the Wealth of Nations determined in 1000 BC?, 2010 - 5 Variables

    The authors explore the relationship between differences in technology adoption across cultures in snapshots from 1000 BCE, 0 CE, 1500 CE, and 2002 CE. While acknowledging various flaws inherent in the ambitious scope of their dataset, a significant relationship is nonetheless revealed between technology adoption in 1500 CE and technology and income in 2002 CE after controlling for various geographic and demographic factors. The authors suggest that this persistence may occur because technology adoption is heavily dependent on stock of prior technology.
