    Story
    (54)

    The Price of Civilization is the blueprint for America’s economic recovery. It is also the story of how America can and must restore the virtues of fairness, honesty, and foresight as the foundations of national prosperity. As he has done in dozens of countries around the world in the midst of economic crisis, Sachs turns his unique diagnostic skills to what ails the American economy.

    Story

    I cannot believe that a PhD in macroeconomics from Harvard would do such a horrible job of misrepresenting facts with skewed statistics and blathering opinions. He compares one city in China to an entire country; completely irrelevant. I kept listening hoping that somewhere in this book would be a kernel of truth. Not only does he misuse statistics but he advocates the overthrow of the American government in favor of the European parliamentary systems. He constantly holds up Scandinavia as the model. He would not be satisfied until we are all taxed at 99% and the government, benevolent as it is, would redistribute the monies. Sachs!!! Socialism died; Capitalism won; move on. What an idiot.
