Foreword by Michael Woolcock of the World Bank and Harvard University
As human beings we are continually seduced by the thought of appearing more impressive and successful in the eyes of those around us. This is how the world in which we live dominates and oppresses so many people, venerating the gods of retail, economics and culture.
