"In Common Wealth, Jeffrey Sachs shows us that we need a new economic paradigm-global, inclusive, cooperative, environmentally aware, and science based-because we are running up against the realities of a crowded planet. If we take the right measures, there will be room for all on the planet to live in peace and prosperity. We can achieve the four key goals of our global society: environmental sustainability (including a solution to climate change), the stabilization of the world's population, the end of extreme poverty, and a new era of global cooperation to solve common problems. These are not utopian goals, but they won't be reached on our current trajectory and with our current economic thinking. Common Wealth points the way to the global course correction we must embrace for the sake of our common future."--BOOK JACKET.
