We have to do a presentation about the first 17 pages of this text. summarize The Key Ideas. Please make a ten to twelve slide powerpoint presentation and a word document with a good text for every slide. The presentation needs to be 10 minutes long. The text needs to written, so I can simply read it out loud.

Please REMEBER ONLY THE FIRST 17 PAGES NEED TO BE SUMMARIZED AND ONLY THE KEY IDEAS!

Beneath I wrote what my professor send me…

.. the key idea is that the potato raises agricultural productivity, thus permitting people to move out of agriculture (and focus on producing industrial goods instead, where the big material gains of the industrial revolutions are reaped) … Without the potato, this structural change would not have occurred as fast.
