The book tells the story of a charming 50,000-year-old family of hunter-gatherer-recordkeepers – the Thogs – who describe how they invented or discovered the essential elements for measuring economic activities. Their story reminds todays accountants and those involved in financial reporting that the past holds much accounting wisdom for the future. While it is a work of scientific fiction, the story in general is historically accurate. Writing and arithmetic, for example, were first invented for bookkeeping.In telling their story, the Thogs teach a team of real-life cutting-edge complexity scientists how back-to-basics accounting is vital to their agent-based economic modeling.
