My Irreversible Point of View

Unfortunately freedom of speech is not totally respected in some parts of the world. That is why I decide to express my point of view in the name of those who are not allowed to express themselves. STAND UP, SPEAK UP! STOP THE TRAFFIK

The End of Poverty, by Jeffrey Sachs


We can end poverty by 2025... and change the world forever.

For the first time in history, our generation has the opportunity to end extreme poverty in the world's most desperate nations. But how can we stop the cycle of bad health, bad debt and bad luck that holds back more than a billion people?
Jeffrey D. Sachs has the answers. He has travelled and worked in over 100 countries across the globe - from Africa to India, Poland to Bolivia - advising leaders on economic development and poverty reduction. Here he lays out how poverty has been beaten in the past, how - in realistic, attainable steps - we can make a real difference for the one-fifth of humanity who still live in extreme poverty, how they can find partnership with their wealthy counterparts to escape the poverty trap, how little it will actually cost, and how everyone can help.
