Land area and agriculture do not matter much when it comes to GDP per capita. Holland and Japan are examples of countries with small area per person, while also having a high GDP per capita.

comment How much faster were the printing presses than hand writing?
I am missing the number of words per page to estimate exactly how much faster it was for each man-hour. I find it interesting to understand whether we are talking 10, 100 or 1000 times faster for the first presses.
