THE END OF POVERTY Economic Possibilities for Our Time

by | Read by Malcolm Hillgartner

Contemporary Culture • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Jeffrey D. Sachs, director of Columbia University's Earth Institute and a UN adviser, looks at successes and failures in the global war on poverty, considers how the gap between rich and poor nations developed, and outlines a plan for ending the worst poverty by 2025. Malcolm Hillgartner makes his delivery heartfelt while maintaining Sachs's optimistic tone and outlook. While the work has dry patches that relate statistics and facts, Sachs's personal anecdotes give Hillgartner room to voice passion and even occasional anger. He admirably represents Sachs, a believer in "capitalism with a human face," and gives listeners plenty of food for thought on sweatshops, the Marshall Plan, debt relief, the responsibility of the world's richest people, and U.S. spending on world poverty.
