Abstract:     
In this talk, I walk through the evolution of exchange, from trades in small kin-based tribes to the global trade in the modern economy. The focus is on the co-evolution of human biology and institutions that have resulted in spectacular increases in human welfare over the past century for much, though not all, of the world.
