Following the same path of Max Weber, Oscar Lewis conceptualized the Culture of Poverty, but came under the attack in his own time. It's said that this is a theory who blame the poor for their poverty. Charles A Valentine, has given three alternative models of the poverty, and has criticized the culture of poverty. When culture is not a culture in our age? How local and global structures are responsible for poverty? Can Marxism (s) interpret the issues of poverty more efficiently than others? If not what is the alternative anthropological theory Thanks!
