Daniel Suelo: The Modern Caveman

If you've ever worried about being unemployed, unexpected bills, paying a mortgage, funding a pension, you might see some sense in the life choices made by Daniel Suelo.

For nearly 10 years he has not owed a penny to anyone.

Daniel Suelo resides in cave in Moab, Utah, in the United States.

He gave up money in 2000 and for the past three years he's been eating food he finds growing wild or scavenged from dustbins.

But Daniel still manages to write a blog. Through it he explains his chosen lifestyle.

Outlook asked him why he does it.
