Summary
Explores the alternative views of wealth and society that are exhibited in the lives of tribal cultures. This program takes you from a New York ad agency to the jungles of Indonesia and the plains of Kenya. Learn why our Western views of wealth and economic needs have created a society of strangers in the midst of material riches, while tribal cultures such as the Weyewa of Indonesia and the Gabra of Kenya create economics of dependency on others and measure wealth through people, not possessions. Follow David Maybury-Lewis as he traces the development of free market economics and explores how its characteristics contrast with tribal conceptions of wealth
