Caral-Supe, one of the great cradles of civilization. It arose near when the more famous ones in China and Mesopotamia did, around 2600 BCE. Caral-Supe, on the coast of modern-day Peru, grew thanks to the abundance of the sea. In this it was unique — other “cradles” were based on newly invented agiculture. Caral-Supe had monuments of stone. It had a writing system made of textiles. It did not have ceramics. Or decorations of any kind. I suppose it’s hard to invent something like drawing if no one has ever thought of it before.

quote Seriously, women make 77 cents to a man’s dollar, but own only 36% as much wealth – and the wealth gap between men and women has widened even as the income gap slowly narrows. Women who never married own 6 percent of the wealth of their bachelor brothers. It gets worse: black and Latino never-married women own a penny for every dollar of wealth controlled by men of their race. And of course, women make up almost two out of three adults living in poverty. Since the capacity to make big political donations is a factor of having disposable wealth, not just income, the wealth gap between men and women is the crucial factor behind the donor gap. That’s the main reason “why women don’t give.”
