Importance in Economic History[edit]

Yale anthropologist David Graeber has used dzamalag (along with similar forms of bartering used in other cultures) as part of his argument that barter could not have been a developmental step towards the use of money, as is commonly hypothesized by economists. I am not sure how to incorporate that into the article, but it probably should be incorporated by an editor more versed in economic history than I am.PohranicniStraze (talk) 05:17, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
