About the author
Jeffrey Sachs is the Director of the Earth Institute and Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development at Columbia University. He is also Special Advisor to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on the Millennium Development Goals, the globally agreed goals to reduce extreme poverty, disease, and hunger by the year 2015. In 2004 and 2005 he was named among the hundred most influential leaders in the world by Time magazine.
One of the world's most brilliant economists and the bestselling author of The End of Poverty and Common Wealth, Jeffrey Sachs has written a book that is essential reading for everyone.
In this time of crisis, The Price of Civilization sets out a bold and provocative, yet responsible and achievable, plan; and reveals why we must - and how we can - change our economic culture in this time of crisis.
This is a masterful roadmap for prosperity, a programme designed to bridge divides and provide a way forward that we - and our leaders - ignore at our peril.
