Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The subject of my statement was the industrial era, worldwide. All I imply about other times is that the exponential population growth is less clear for them.

The "entire recorded history of Europe" is an interesting case, especially since the Crusades. The ever cutting edge military "competition" complements Catholic birth rates nicely. The colonialist expansions were bringing resources to European imperial centers way before the industrial revolution, right. We can say that Europe has its own way of dealing with resource totals. In that way the European history  confirms rather than falsifies significance of resources.
