Even severe problems are manageable
Famed economist Jeffrey Sachs delivers pessimistic news optimistically. Yes,
the earth is direly threatened by global warming, poverty, war and deforestation. Yet, Sachs asserts that these severe problems are manageable. Sachs doesn’t shy away from politically touchy declarations, arguing against the US war in Iraq and for legalized abortion, and delivering a juxtaposed frightening and promising message. GetAbstract recommends this book to anyone seeking insight into the world’s most pressing problems.
