Author: Jeffrey D. Sachs
Book Site: The Price of Civilization
In "The Price of Civilization," Jeffrey Sachs offers a plan to turn the current economic crisis around. He argues that the problem is not America’s abiding values, which remain generous and pragmatic, but the ease with which political spin and consumerism run circles around those values.
Sachs asks the reader to reclaim the virtues of good citizenship and mindfulness toward the economy and one another. Sachs bids each of us to accept the price of civilization, to restore America to its great promise.
