The End of Poverty

How We Can Make it Happen in Our Lifetime

Jeffrey Sachs
Foreword by Bono

The book at the centre of the Make Poverty History campaign. Simultaneous publication in Royal format hardback.

This book is the basis for Make Poverty History - an enormous movement backed by dozens of charities and celebrities (including Bob Geldof, Bono and Richard Curtis) to eradicate poverty by 2025 and timed to coincide with the G8 summit, the anniversaries of Live Aid and Children in Need and the UK Presidency of the EU. Sachs offers an inspiring vision of the key to economic success in the world and explains why wealth and poverty have diverged across the planet. Readers are left with an understanding not only of how daunting the world's problems are, but how solvable they are - and why making the effort is our human duty.

Jeffrey Sachsis the Director of the Earth Institute, Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development, and Professor of Health Policy and Management at Columbia University, as well as Special Advisor to United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan. He is internationally renowned for his work as economic advisor to governments in Latin America, Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, Asia and Africa.
