From Rice to Riches


From Rice to Riches

Logo for From Rice to Riches
This is a series of 300 photographs that depict life in other countries. From the perspective of economics, they demonstrate the lack of capital goods in a poor country. The scarcity of capital helps to explain the low productivity and the abundance of labor helps to explain the low wage. From the perspective of geography, the photographs demonstrate that different cultures do indeed have different habits and mores. Many of the pictures deal with the rhythm of rice in Asia.
