Jeffrey Sachs on Ending Poverty by Mitch E. Perry
Last week we ran an interview with Dr. William Easterly, who is disdainful of U.S. Foreign Aid, saying thereÃ¢â¬â¢s a lot of good will involved, but very poor execution.
A much different perspective comes from Columbia University Professor Jeffrey Sachs, dubbed the most important economist in the world last year by the New York Times Magazine.
His book Ã¢â¬ÅThe End of PovertyÃ¢â¬?, has just been published in paperback We began our interview with Jeffrey Sachs by asking him about the last summerÃ¢â¬â¢s G-8 Summit held in Gleneagles, ScotlandÃ¢â¬Â¦Activists had targeted the meeting as a place where the worldÃ¢â¬â¢s largest countries could make a significant impact on poverty and debt relief (roll tape#1 o.q.Ã¢â¬?economic development as wellÃ¢â¬?)
ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s Columbia University economist Jeffrey SachsÃ¢â¬Â¦Ã¢â¬Â¦WeÃ¢â¬â¢ll speak with him later this week in the 2nd part of our interview with the noted economist.comments powered by Disqus
