What does it mean to be poor in Britain and America? For decades the primary narrative about poverty in these wealthy nations is that it is caused by personal flaws or bad life decisions rather than policy choices or economic inequality. Trying to answer this question (and many others) are award-winning journalist Mary O Hara, and artist Ellie Harrison. Mary’s book The Shame Game, asks how we can overturn this fundamentally pernicious portrayal once and for all and Ellie’s year-long experiment living a low-carbon life in a post-industrial, and staggeringly unequal Glasgow is documented in The Glasgow Effect: A Tale of Class, Capitalism and Carbon Footprint
