Summary
A powerful portrayal of Jeffrey Sachs's ambitious quest to end global poverty. As special adviser to the Secretary-General of the United Nations and author of The End of Poverty, Sachs argues that extreme poverty is a solvable problem, drawing on success stories from his daring five-year Millennium Villages Project experiment in Africa in 2006 to demonstrate how specific initiatives can enable profound positive changes
