A respected international economic advisor and the director of The Earth Institute shares a wide-spectrum theory about how to enable economic success throughout the world, identifying the different categories into which various nations fall in today's economy while posing solutions to top political, environmental, and social problems that contribute to poverty. [The author] sets the stage by drawing a ... conceptual map of the world economy and the different categories into which countries fall. Then ... he explains why, over the past two hundred years, wealth has diverged across the planet in the manner that it has and why the poorest nations have been so markedly unable to escape the cruel vortex of poverty. The groundwork laid, he explains his methods for arriving ... at a holistic diagnosis of a country's situation and the options it faces. Rather than deliver a worldview to readers from on high, [the author] leads them along the learning path he himself followed, telling the ... stories of his own work in Bolivia, Poland, Russia, India, China, and Africa as a way to bring readers to a broad-based understanding of the array of issues countries can face and the way the issues interrelate. He concludes by drawing on everything he has learned to offer an integrated set of solutions to the interwoven economic, political, environmental, and social problems that most frequently hold societies back. In the end, he leaves readers with an understanding, not of how daunting the world's problems are, but how solvable they are - and why making the effort is a matter both of moral obligation and strategic self-interest.… (mais)

"Jeffrey Sachs first lays out ... a clear conceptual map of the world economy.
He explains why, over the past two hundred years, wealth has diverged across
the planet and why the poorest nations have so far been unable to improve their
lot. He explains how to arrive at an in-depth diagnosis of a country's economic
challenges and the options it faces. He leads readers along the same learning
path he himself followed, telling the stories of his own work in Bolivia,
Poland, Russia, India, China, and Africa as a way to bring readers with him to
a deep understanding of the challenges faced by developing countries in
different parts of the world." --Jacket

Sachs has a few good, very basic ideas. Mostly what I got from this book was that he agrees with me that paying so little (~0.2% of our GNP) in foreign aid, and tying it to so many requirements and paperwork, is false economy. Unfortunately, it's a very dull book. Most of it is spent detailing every little talk and piece of advice he's given, and naming every important or famous person he's ever met. What little conceptual work is tainted by A)his seething hatred for communism and B)a complete lack of sources. He doesn't cite a damn thing, his stats have no error bars or confidence intervals or anything of the sort, and he's so vicious about communism that I just didn't feel like I could rely on anything he said.

US economist proposes specific spending plans to lift the world's poorest 20% out of extreme poverty in 10 years while simultaneously improving US national security. ( )

Jeffrey Sachs is a liberal economist, which means that even though he knows free markets work he tries to talk about it as little as possible and prefers to talk about the importance of government intervention.

In this book he also talks about how he truthfully did help many economies recover by using free market principles but for some reason the free market is not the answer in the future. In the future it's all about government programs and massive foreign investment and a free market has a small corollary roll.

Sach's is just weird in some of his opinions. He thinks the antiglobalization crowd is wrong in any meaningful way but because he believes their heart is in the right place they have been a net good on society. He really lost me with that one.

Overall Sach's just has a tough role to play as a liberal economist because he knows that free markets works but he can't do much about it because that is what conservatives do. What a hack. ( )

The author has been successful in helping some poor countries become richer. This book presents his ideas for helping all Third World countries.

Sachs only ever talks about Africa in clichés about hunger, Aids, malaria and misery. The reader must deduce that the continent - and anywhere else with extremely poor people - is permanently and uniformly suffering like Malawi in a bad drought, and that poor countries can only get to the next stage of development with the west's help. Can Africa possibly help itself? Sadly, we are barely told.
