      Warfare and Agriculture in Classical Greece suggests that for all ancient societies, rural depression and desolation came about from more subtle phenomena--taxes, changes in political and social structure, and new cultural values--rather than from destructive warfare. The ancient Greeks were for the most part a rural, not an urban, society. "food surplus" has remained relatively obscure. Nicholls has defined an "agricultural surplus" as "the physical amount by which, in any given country, total food production exceeds total food consumption of the agricultural population" [6] p. 1. While this is perhaps the best availa-ble definition, it is not unambiguous; Nicholls himself seems.

analysis of labor supply within agriculture while the lab or surplus model deals with tracing the dynamic reallocation of labor from a traditional to a neo- classical organized sector in a dualistic economy. We present data for a number of labor surplus developing countries showing that.

Surplus labour is a concept used by Karl Marx in his critique of political economy. It means labour performed in excess of the labour necessary to produce the means of livelihood of the worker. The "surplus" in this context means the additional labour a worker has to do in his/her job, beyond earning his own keep.

According to Marxian economics, surplus labour is usually uncompensated labour. The prosperity of the majority of Greek city-states was based on agriculture and the ability to produce the necessary surplus which allowed some citizens to pursue other trades and pastimes and to create a quantity of exported goods so that they could be exchanged for necessities the community lacked.

THE MICRO-ECONOMICS OF "SURPLUS LABOR" Gustav Ranis Yale University The issue of "surplus labor" remains unresolved in the development literature. With unskilled rural labor the abundant resource in many developing countries, especially at an early stage of development, what determines the price of labor has been a controversial issue.

Labor Surplus Economies Abstract The labor surplus economy model has as its basic premise the inability of unskilled agricultural labor markets to clear in countries with high man/land ratios. In such situations, the marginal product of labor is likely to fall below a bargaining wage, related to the average rather than the marginal product.

Nicholls. Greece's agricultural sector suffers from a lack of many natural resources. Approximately 70 percent of the land cannot be cultivated because of poor soil or because it is covered by forests.

Agriculture is centered in the plains of Thessaly, Macedonia, and Thrace, where corn, wheat, barley, sugar beets, cotton, and tobacco are harvested. The essence of the development process in such an economy is “the transfer of labour resources from the agricultural sector, where they add nothing to production, to the more modern industrial sector, where they create a surplus that may be used for further growth and development.”.

In Lewis model the transformation process or the process of structural change starts by an autonomous. agricultural surplus Mayan royal families and leading courtiers were responsible for conducting daily processions and feasts during which copious amounts of cacao spiced with chili, vanilla and honey were consumed, constituting an example of the highly ritualized and sophisticated nature of Mayan society.
