This interesting illustration was found in the Practical Handbook of Material Flow Analysis and describe the material turnover of primitive man in his private household was about an order of magnitude smaller than today's consumption of goods. The illustration demonstrates that the material and waste turned over outside of households to manufacture the goods consumed in households are larger than 100 t/(c.yr).
