We typically view poverty as a technical problem we can solve with more money, more technology, and more volunteers. But there is an adaptive side to the problem of poverty as well. Reframing Poverty directs our attention to the emotional and often unconscious mindsets we bring to this issue. Meade's approach is as unique as it is challenging. Rather than trite tips or tricks, he offers a series of nested insights from diverse fields like political science, physics, complexity theory, and psychology. Most importantly, he provides a path of self-exploration for those eager to become the kind of people who can successfully navigate the tensions of a world in need. *Winner of FIVE awards, including a Silver Nautilus Book Award and an Independent Press Award. "Engaging and engrossing ... avoids simple answers in favor of real insights into the roots of poverty." (CLARION REVIEWS) "A provocative book that upends conventional thinking and forces the reader to think deeply about what poverty is." (ERIC NEE, Editor-in-Chief, Stanford Social Innovation Review)
