"I hope I'm not off-topic.  I believe religion, particularly in developing countries, is one of the causes of poverty.  First off, the Church, specially in developing countries with strong Catholic faith, reinforces the unproductive…"

"Thanks a lot for the many hints Keith, and all for the comments. I am not saying that most of the economists like to discover the hot water, I mean that I am puzzled how we as anthropologists and they as economists are closed in our positions even…"
