    1. Towards the End of Poverty A ManifestoThe difference between a solid policy prescription book and an evocative manifesto is hard to make out if it is an economist writing it I should have known which side this would fall on once I saw that the introduction was by Bono, but I let the forceful and articulate Bono force me into buying this one In the store, Bono s righteous anger was infectious and the book could not be put down It sounded like a moral obligation Fifteen thousand people dying needl [...]


    2. You, being a smart person who is up on contemporary debates in economics and development and or are a reader of Vanity Fair, probably already know all about Sachs and this book.Sachs made his name giving shock therapy to various third world economies He recommended they jack up interest rates, and pushed them towards neo liberal free market structures His career hit a bit of a bad patch when he was associated with the economic meltdown of the former Soviet Socialist Republic This book is his rec [...]


    3. What do Bono, and countless other celebrities have in common with the author A They ve always wanted to be celebrities What is different A The celebs actually think that the world can be rid of poverty and misery and vice Are you honestly going to tell me that one of the world s most influential economists ACTUALLY believes that poverty can be banished or even meaningfully reduced Not a chance Not with Africa s population growth rate Sachs is selling panic again to promote himself and it s reall [...]


    4. I expected to give this book one star, but I could get behind enough of Sachs ideas to give it two Sachs opposes IMF WB austerity measures to promote development, and defends health care, education, and other services as public goods He advocates taxing the rich and getting the world s wealthiest people to invest their money in the world s poorest people He opposes Bush s excessive military spending because he thinks US and global security are effectively guaranteed by cutting down global pover [...]


    5. A well written book In my opinion it can not be read without also reading William Easterly s book The Quest For Growth The two scholors are at war with each other Their debate is all the interesting when you read the back and forth op ed pieces they have written in the Washington Post I tend to agree with Easterly Sachs means well, but he is very full of himself His book is a tribute to what he can do, and other economists can t than a good debate on the issues Flying Bono around makes for nic [...]



    6. One of Cambridge Sustainability s Top 50 Books for Sustainability, as voted for by our alumni network of over 3,000 senior leaders from around the world To find out , click here.The End of Poverty argues that extreme poverty, defined by the World Bank as having an income of less than 1 a day, is the poverty that kills However, it is almost entirely preventable and solvable as has been shown in developed countries and many developing countries through the provision of basic services in water, san [...]


    7. Another book written by a rich caucasian on how to solve Third World problems Sachs floats a lot of economic theories and Bono throws in his bit as well Understandably so, they ve never walked a mile in a poor person s shoes Some things are just as nature intended We cannot all be wealthy CEOs, who ll do the ground work Intervention does harm than good, most of the time Some relief schemes are built on greed and filth Just look at USaid Closer to home, look at the giant retailers We need to und [...]


    8. Generation X seems to have missed out on causes greater than ourselves The Greatest Generation had World War II The baby boomers had efforts to overcome racial discrimination and end the war in Vietnam Gen X ers have enjoyed economic prosperity and although there were events going on in the world where we should have stood up and rallied the nation around the need to do the right thing ending genocide in Bosnia, Rwanda, and Darfur come to mind , we opted to continue the materialistic pursuits ch [...]


    9. Read for class.Sachs ideas are becoming so commonplace in discussions of modern development that it would be foolhardy not to read him His advocacy of shock therapy in economics controversial at best, and I won t go into detail about it here I am very impressed with some of his ideas about how geography impacts development similar to some of the ideas mentioned in Guns Germs and Steel and how each government should increase aid with simple technological solutions, but again, some are dreck Devel [...]


    10. I strongly believe that this is an important book to read for everyone of our generation Although Sachs at times seems like an ideologist, I share his sentiments and am grateful for how his book portrays that ending extreme poverty is within our grasp and probably a lot simpler than we think His experiences weave a compelling narrative which provides generalized but valuable lessons on development work His check list approach to the causes of and solutions to poverty is widely discredited for be [...]


    11. Oh Jeffn I call you Jeff No Ok Dr Sachs, you re ideas are way too lofty and boring, but you re really enthusiastic about them so everyone likes you I only think you re OK What happens when all of Bono s money goes into the pockets of corrupt dictators Will he be able to afford sunglasses so he can continue to have pictures of himself taken with brown kids in the bright African sun I think he will Meanwhile, entrepreneurs in those bright African places will continue stay stagnant and poor.


    12. A new way to think of global economics, for sure I need some time to process his concept of capitalism with a heart as the best vehicle for social justice I can respect the way Sachs tries to find a middle ground between dog eat dog free market systems and closed authoritarian systems A little repetitive at the end and not super well written.


    13. I found Jeffrey Sachs The End of Povertyto be extremely enlightening and informative on the issues of poverty, globalization, and the issues developing countries face that prevent them to achieve the first steps towards economic development I ll admit to having no prior knowledge or experience in this area, especially in economics There were parts of the book where I became confused by the data explained and density of the writing, but, in general, Sachs ideas are easy to comprehend and clarifie [...]


    14. Well written and intriguing, but I was looking for of a boots on the ground directive of how to help those in poverty This does give a great overview of the history and the situation and the fix.




    15. Very powerful book, Sach s is very passionate on the topic of world poverty and how billions of the world s population is living on less than 1 a day He details policies and ideas that have been tried and those that he believes can work to end world poverty It is amazing to me that an book by an economist can come across as christian and how do we help the poor and disadvantaged than a lot of christians that I come in contact with on the same subject Well written book and it gave me a new persp [...]


    16. Sachs focuses on the plight of the 1 billion people in extreme poverty, of which 20,000 perish each day The book centers on the idea that we need to help the extreme poor to climb onto the ladder of economic development, which is currently out of their reach Eight problems are noted that can cause a country to fail Poverty trap unable to accumulate capital per person , physical geography, fiscal trap limited government resources , governance failures, cultural barriers undermined rights of parts [...]


    17. This is a good book and it shares with us Sach s wealth of experience in international economics The problem for me is that I read Poor Economics A Radical Rethinking of the Way to Fight Global Poverty first, and that book changed the whole way I look at politics and international development it was mind blowing Sachs suffers from the comparison with kind of run of the mill recommendations.


    18. It is about macroeconomic solutions to end world poverty, written by one of the world s most influential economic advisors Starts off with a global picture of poverty, then goes on to modern history from the Industrial Revolution on, in a economic human development point of view From this book one shall learn that geopolitics has had a lot do with why some countries are so well off while others just seem to keep on getting worse He explains why ODA in the past have failed, and why the World Bank [...]



    19. As someone with a passion for helping the poor, I thought this book would be a worthwhile read However, I walk away feeling like I listened to a broken record for the entire book Sachs main thesis in my opinion is that poor countries need a fresh start via debt cancellation, coupled with an injection of ODA provided by the world s rich countries He illustrated this argument 500 times in a variety of ways His style was too confrontational and I know best for my liking After hearing me , my , and [...]


    20. Sachs visited Malawi a few times in the 2000s, and met the country s vice president, a remarkably fine individual, a dignified, eloquent, a popular figure in what is against all odds a multiparty democracy He came to know Malawi relatively well and saw people dying of AIDS, depleted soil, no medicines in the hospital, children stunted from malnutrition Paul Theroux visited the country in 2001 unlike Sachs, he speaks Chichewa, the Bantu language widely spoken in Malawi, having worked in what was [...]


    21. This book was written by left leaning Jeffrey Sachs, who you can see on Morning Joe at least once a week.This book was a interesting read than I thought it would be I assumed Sachs would just say to take American taxpayer money and give it to 3rd world countries Well, he did say that, but he also discussed the reasons many countries are impoverished Certainly the United States is at an advantage when it comes to our form of government, our economic model, our natural resources, and our proximit [...]


    22. Sachs is a world reknowned economist who goes into detail about his work in Guatemala, India, Poland, and Russia, which put him on the map Many of these countries face hyperinflation, and he guided them to stabilize their money, and receive debt cancellation from other countries a very controversial issue at the time In the beginning he explains what the poverty trap is how some countries cannot even get on the first rung of the economic ladder because of their lack of natural resources, propens [...]


    23. EVERY 60 SECONDS IN AFRICA A MINUTE PASSES.A book that I was forced to read and present some time ago as requested by my boss at work The ideas presented here were really not that exciting for me and amazingly I grew to like his biggest critics even Dambisa Moyo and William Easterly, so I would suggest them The overly optimistic tone not only is boring which doesn t say much but obviously not working, I mean one does not even have to be an economist to understand that to keep pumping money wo [...]



    24. An excellent book about developmental economics While Jeffrey Sachs is criticized for being too naive in this book by some others who work in this field, I for one appreciated his optimistic yet grounded in reality approach to how to reduce poverty in developing countries I especially enjoyed the first half of the book which was a surprisingly fast read It includes specific examples of various economies, e.g Bolivia, Poland, Russia, China, India, Africa, and the unique challenges and successes f [...]


    25. Jeffrey Sachs has degrees and social achievements in his modest years than most people of that social responsibility crowd achieve in a lifetime His driving passion is not to achieve an equal distribution of wealth but rather to raise the average wealth of all mankind by helping to bring the poorest of us out of poverty In this offering he calculates the modest cost an amount equal to one cup of Starbucks coffee from every American and the practical application helping people help themselves th [...]
