The End of Poverty

Jeffrey Sachs

Overview

Did you know there is more than enough wealth in the world to bring an end to poverty? Yet millions of people are living on just one or two dollars a day, and tragically, around 18,000 children die of malnutrition daily.

It's pretty awful to think about how many people live lives of luxury and comfort, while others don't even know if they'll have enough money to feed their families. Many of us go day to day not thinking about this bizarre reality.

But the real question is, why does poverty still exist to this extent? It's true that huge amounts of aid are sent to developing countries every year, yet poverty remains. So should we give more? Or should we give up? In The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities for our Time by Jeffrey Sachs, we learn the real truth behind why poverty persists and what we can collectively do to overcome it.

Sachs reveals that poverty is a complex problem, and the reasons for it are highly individual to each country. The good news, however, is that helping countries affected by extreme poverty can be done, as long as developmental aid can be invested wisely.
