  1. The Mayan economy was based on food and agriculture. Farmers acted as a big part of the economy since they’re the ones that brought in food for the civilization. Farmers gave up portion’s of each crop, or paid with other items such as salt, cloth, honey, fruit, and domestic animals to the government and also used them to buy and trade goods. Cacao and cotton were grown as cash crops, and were also used to trade.The only animals they raised were turkeys, guniea pigs, ducks, and edible dogs. Bees were also raised to produce honey for themselves or for TRADE, and worked by LABOR.

    Therefore, the Mayans economy was CAPITALISM

  2. It was agricultural. And they bartered for their wares.

    It was a primitive form of mercantilism (not capitalism).
