Braudel and other supporters of the trade-as-prime-mover 18 MAARTEN PRAK approach underscored the pivotal role of towns in the development of markets, trade, and therefore capital accumulation. But in the sixteenth century, less than ten per cent of Europeans lived in a town. Brenner was therefore correct, on grounds of numbers if nothing else, to call attention to changes in rural society.

Because of the difficulties involved with accurate demographic estimations, RicardianMalthusian pessimists have searched for evidence of increased hardship elsewhere. They have focused in particular on the apparent increase in the volatility of grain prices on urban markets (rural prices being generally unknown), which they take as evidence of worsening harvests and of the increased liability of the urban poor to death by hunger. Both inferences are open to question. Price volatility is strictly speaking a function of the efficiency of urban supply structures rather than of the volatility of the neighbouring harvest.
