Finally, discuss the role of bilateral descent systems and nuclear families in our society as they relate to our economy. What aspects of our culture contribute to ideas about marriage, family, and kinship? 2. Discuss the transition from “food foraging” (an immediate-return system) to “food production” (a delayed-return system) and the four modes of subsistence associated with these different strategies for acquiring food. What are some of the processes involved in the origins of agriculture and the social/cultural implications of shifting toward “food-production” in terms of mobility, technology, health and resource management? In order to answer this question completely, you must discuss the specific modes of subsistence, as well as several social implications, making sure to explain why each implication is tied to food production.
