We speak with the acclaimed Chilean economist, Manfred Max-Neef.


He won the Right Livelihood Award in 1983, two years after the publication of his book Outside Looking In - Experiences in Barefoot Economics.

"Economists study and analyze poverty in their nice offices, have all the statistics, make all the models, and are convinced that they know everything that you can know about poverty. But they don’t understand poverty," Max-Neef says.
