The End of Poverty

Jeffrey Sachs draws on his remarkable 25 years' experience to offer a thrilling and inspiring vision of the keys to economic success in the world today. 

Jeffrey Sachs has advised an extraordinary range of world leaders and international institutions about reducing poverty. This book offers an inspiring big-picture vision of the keys to economic success in the world today and the steps that are necessary to achieve prosperity for all.

With eyewitness storytelling and insightful analysis, Sachs draws a vivid conceptual map of the world economy and the different categories into which countries fall. He then 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.

A work of profound moral and intellectual vision and a road map to a safer, more prosperous future for the world.
