9780704373037: The Necessity of Poverty

A former rough sleeper and troubled child of poverty, John Bird, founder of The Big Issue, has written an excoriating attack on orthodox thinking around the gap between rich and poor. Provoking an intellectual revolution, he spares neither himself nor others in identifying what needs to be done to end poverty. A lifelong autodidact, Bird has learned much from his time in orphanages, in prison, in slums - and on the streets. With The Necessity of Poverty, the social entrepreneur offers a fresh perspective as one who was once part of the problem and has now become part of the solution.

About the Author:

John Bird MBE was brought up in an orphanage and served time in a young offenders' institute in his teens. Having slept rough with London's homeless, he decided to take action. He found factory work and soon became a skilled printer. Twenty-one years ago, John harnessed his knowledge of the print industry with his social vision and founded The Big Issue - sold by the homeless, for the homeless. John is now a globally-admired social entrepreneur.

Review:
