“Ending Poverty in Our Generation: Still Time if We Try”
Ending extreme poverty is not a dream but a practical possibility. Improvements in science, technology, and global networks make possible advances in wellbeing at unprecedented rates. Yet a high degree of social organization is needed for success. Sachs will sketch the main contours of an effective global effort against poverty, hunger, and disease to the year 2025.
