Manfred Max-Neef's Fundamental human needs

On November 26, 2010, Amy Goodman from Democracy Now! did a very interesting interview with Manfred-Max-Neef :

“Chilean Economist Manfred Max-Neef on Barefoot Economics, Poverty and Why The U.S. is Becoming an ‘Underdeveloping Nation’ “

The interview taken from the whole broadcast appears here (content should be the same although AG appears in different dresses in her intro in part 1 and outro in part 2 than in the broadcast): (Part 1) (Part 2)
