Jeffrey Sachs

Jeffrey Sachs is the author of The End of Poverty – which you should read if you haven’t, you should. His new book, Common Wealth, is like a textbook for the world.

In the book he lists four major things that need to be done in order to prevent a global economic meltdown.

1) Environmental Sustainability

2) Stabilization of the world’s population

3) The end of extreme poverty

4) Effective global cooperation

Despite the doom and gloom feel you could get from the title and index, the book itself is very readable and provides real optimism for both individuals and governments if the paths offered are followed.
