Description
(Named One of the Best Books of the Year by the London Guardian and Publishers Weekly) Jeffrey Sachs's 2011 follow-up to The End of Poverty and Common Wealth is an incisive diagnosis of our country's economic ills (with a new preface for this 2012 edition). Sachs explains how both political parties—and many leading economists—have missed the big picture, profoundly underestimating globalization's long-term effects and offering shortsighted solutions to appease big political donors. To thrive in the 21st century, he argues, each of us must recognize the true price of civilization, and as a country we must reinstate core American virtues of fairness, honesty, and foresight as the foundations of our economy.

"Sachs's book is loaded with information and anecdotes [and] proposals that would make it harder for the powerful to rig the system for their benefit."—Scientific American
