Good point! But I'd also argue that even in succesful, wealthy, cultures _most_ people have only pretty limited knowledge. The wealth helps support specialists who can figure out, pass along, and use this knowledge. But I think the average farmer, trader, etc will still have a much more limited knowledge--the difference with the more marginal cultures is that they have access to people who DO have that knowledge.
