Описание на книгата Откъс от книгата За автора

Sachs, economist and advisor to the UN, offers a blueprint for eliminating--by 2025--the hunger and extreme poverty responsible for millions around the world dying because of disease and lack of drugs. With a foreward by rock star Bono, this book tells how to achieve the goal of a world safe from poverty and the terrorism it feeds. He explains how to fight disease, promote good science and universal education, put into place critical infrastructure, and help the poorest global citizens. Noting that aid from the U.S. constitutes a very small percentage of its GNP, Sachs challenges the U.S. to transfer part of its military budget to global security through economic development and calls on the wealthiest Americans to provide extra assistance. This is an excellent, understandable book on a critical topic and should be required reading for students and participants in public policy as well as those who doubt the problem of world poverty can be solved.
