A Global Compact to End Poverty
Brian Snowdon presents the text of a two-hour interview conducted with Jeffrey D. Sachs of Columbia Universityâ€”a wide-ranging discussion relating to Professor Sachsâ€™s work over the past thirty years on macroeconomic stabilisation, the economics of transition, and several important issues in the field of international economic development. First, Snowdon provides some background to the debate relating to Professor Sachsâ€™s most recent work that has helped focus international attention on the growth tragedy of sub-Saharan Africa. This key humanitarian issue has received enormous coverage in the media throughout 2005 and has been highlighted in particular at the G8 meetings in Gleneagles and worldwide Live 8 Concerts in July 2005, and the UN World Summit in September.
