In Common Wealth, Jeffrey D. Sachs—one of the world’s most respected economists and the author of the New York Times bestseller The End of Poverty—offers an urgent assessment of the environmental degradation, rapid population growth, and extreme poverty that threaten global peace and prosperity. Through crystalline examination of hard facts, Sachs predicts the cascade of crises that awaits this crowded planet—and presents a program of sustainable development and international cooperation that will correct this dangerous course. Few luminaries anywhere on the planet are as schooled in this daunting subject as Sachs, and this is the vital product of his experience and wisdom.

    " Why hasn't everyone read this book? This is about the future of humanity. In 2008, the human population became more urban than rural for the first time EVER!! That alone is significant. But it's one one little star in this the sky of this book. "

    " It took me some time to finish this as it is not a fast read. But it is very good and makes the reader consider some very real problems and how they can be solved. "

    " This book connects lots of different topics in ways I never would have imagined...It essentially lists all of the worlds ills and how they are connected to global poverty in a way that is thoroughly researched, and smartly cross referenced. The book finishes with a call to action that left me inspired in spite of all of the terrible things the book is about. I hope Obama knows this guy. "
