comment Historical drivers behind demographics of Indigenous populations in American countries
It would be nice to "migrate" this map to the other question. Too bad it's a duplicate. This questionner actually made a good contribution!

Very strong first effort.

@EvilWashingMachine: The way I'd put it is, is "why couldn't "France" muster more men at Crecy than the Romans at Asculum? And the reason was that even though "France" had 15-20 million people in 1346, it was a collection of feudal states. The French kings actually controlled maybe 4 million people, and fielded an army of 40,000 (1% of its population). Rome, at Asculum controlled 5 million people and fielded an army of 50,000 (also 1%). Hope this answers your question.

comment Did the Southern States make any attempt to secede from the Union through an act of Congress?
You have two questions in one. I would delete the part after "If the Compact Theory does not hold water..."

@Steven Drennon: I have made the question more objective, and hopefully more answerable, by asking for the views of economic writers, and was wondering if the question can be re-opened in its current form.
