Not long ago we were a subsistence economy, based on
poor mountain agriculture, struggling to fertilise the few
alluvial valley floors; in some cases people had to move
further up the mountainsides and build terraces so that
they could produce the few sacks of rye and few kilos of
potatoes that they needed to make it through harsh winters.
In few years we have gone from this to a service economy.
