The Price of Civilization: Economics and Ethics After the Fall

Sachs, Jeffrey D.
ISBN:
9780307357588

For more than three decades, Jeffrey D. Sachs has been at the forefront of international economic problem solving. But the bestselling author of The End of Poverty and Common Wealth turns his attention to his own home, the United States, in The Price of Civilization, a book that is essential reading for everyone concerned with the global economy. In a forceful, impassioned and personal voice, Sachs offers not only a searing and incisive diagnosis of his country's economic ills but also an urgent call to restore the virtues of fairness, honesty and foresight as the foundations of national wealth. The Price of Civilization is a masterly road map for prosperity, rooted in a rigorous understanding of the twenty-first century world economy and the importance of crucial human values.
