Product description


"Having a lifelong interest in human rights issues and having read many articles about poverty I was shocked to learn - when reading this book - that many of my basic concepts about poverty - my understanding of poverty were totally wrong. Jeremy argues that the consumerist culture that pervades the whole planet now - its "unlimited demand for limited resources", the desire to "have-what-I-want" rather than "live-on-what-I-need" attitude - these are the root causes of poverty. Organisations like the IMF and World Bank - these are helping to cause more poverty than alleviate it. The belief that the endless pursuit of money will "raise everyones level" simply is not true. This is an extremely important book for anyone who wishes to understand the real root causes of poverty. A must read." Amazon Customer Review (5 star)
