Jeremy Seabrook summarizes his celebrated work on the meaning of poverty drawing on the experiences of poor people themselves in both rich and poor societies. He writes that the opposite of poverty is not wealth but â€˜sufficiencyâ€™. Economic growth will never overcome problems it is largely responsible for creating. This is a clarion call for a radical rethink not just about poverty but about the way we live.
