Publisher's Summary

From one of the world's greatest economic minds, author of the New York Times best seller The End of Poverty, a clear and vivid map of the road to sustainable and equitable global prosperity - and an augury of the global economic collapse that lies ahead if we don't follow it.
©2008 Jeffrey D. Sachs; (P)2008 Penguin

Critic Reviews

"Lucid, quietly urgent, and relentlessly logical... this is Bigthink with a capital B." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Jeffrey Sachs never disappoints.... This book is an excellent resource for all those who want to understand what changes the twenty-first century may bring." (Kofi Annan, winner of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize and former secretary-general of the United Nations)
"Common Wealth explains the most basic economic reckoning that the world faces." (Al Gore)
